"A Show Worth Catching, Too"
Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema shared his memorable dining experience at Roof Terrace Restaurant in a recent installment of his First Bite column. He dished on new menu items like spicy tuna tartare, pan seared skate wing and fall panzanella salad, as well as the refresh features that make the expansive dining room more accessible to a variety of diners. Sietsema concludes, "Some of the best seats in the house are far from the stage...much of [Roof Terrace Restaurant's new menu] developed by executive chef Joe Gurner deserves applause."
