Nage Bistro Restaurant Review

: Playing off its reputation as a beachy favorite from Rehoboth, Nage came to DC several years ago 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 have 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. Maybe the best times to stop in are for the weekend brunch, when the menu offers such delights as a Belgian waffle, lemon zest pancakes, and the classic mac ā€˜nā€™ cheese with chorizo and bacon. Accompany your meal with a selection from the fairly extensive wine list.
