Nage Restaurant Review

: Playing off its reputation as a beachy favorite from Rehoboth, Nage came to DC and its arrival created some stir among those familiar with its home turf. Then Nage became an "it" place, a popular destination for late-nighters and the luncheon crowd. But the owner and chefs changed. Somehow the splendid seasonings of yesterday have become today's not-so-special. The classic French onion soup lacked flavor depth and plenty of gooey cheese; the hamburger was just ordinary and the dessert choices seem limited. But facelifts, menu changes, and a determined management/culinary team may shake things up. The weekend brunch menu offers such delights as a Belgian waffle, lemon zest pancakes, and baked avocado huevos rancheros. Accompany your meal with a selection from the fairly extensive wine list.
