THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Harvest Restaurant Restaurant Review: Another Virginia-Highland restaurant housed in a former residence, Harvest has a charming front porch area and an outdoor patio. Inside, the dining spaces provide comfortably-situated seating and a welcoming bar. Chef Justin Ward has a reputation for creativity in the kitchen and reasonable prices. He features delectable small plates that easily make nice light entrées, as do the appetizers. Tamarind-glazed beef short ribs, one of the latter, are so delectable, ask the kitchen for a double order with some mashed potatoes for an entrée. They'll gladly comply. Asian flavors anoint the menu, which once was Mediterranean-driven, although they are well-integrated into the dishes. There are Mexican touches, and the Italian dishes are not far behind. Right next to a dish of ginger-soy-marinated ahi tuna with avocado and tomato you'll find a delectable roasted garlic and potato ravioli with porcini butter. Vegetarians are well-treated here, with such dishes as the aforementioned ravioli, a seasonally variable vegetable plate, and great salads. This neighborhood bistro maintains a serious wine list and does frequent wine-focused dinners.
