Black's Bar & Kitchen Restaurant Review: This Bethesda hot-spot’s once low country cooking has gone in a more polished Southern and Mediterranean direction with a strong emphasis on seafood entrées, such as the pepper- and-fennel-crusted tuna and the seafood stew with cerignola olives and preserved lemon. Meatier fare includes lamb loin, spice-crusted duck breast, and a couple of steak options. Lunching here will save you a few bucks; order the soft shell crab sandwich or the barbecue duck quesadilla, both light main courses. For dessert, the chocolate-caramel tart would be a good way to go. Be sure to scan the very extensive wine menu, with selections that span the globe to suit every possible palate.
