A weekend with my daughter in
(September 11 & 12, 2010)
Driving to Greenbelt, MD and taking the Metro into the city
total vehicular freedom and an escape from usurious parking fees.
and I did some food shopping Saturday afternoon
to dinner at Montmartre, DC, a delightful French bistro.
morning I headed over to the Capitol for the
"Remember in November" rally, where my friend John Gimbel
in the press section. I had an opportunity to interview
one of the
keynote speakers, Rep. Mike Pence (R, IN-6).

Jennifer had escargots as an
appetizer and pork cheeks with a dense demi-glaze sauce.
I started things off with a
salmon tartare and seaweed salad, and also had the pork cheeks.
We shared an ample and
delicious chocolate mousse for dessert.
I relented on my no-alcohol
regimen with an estate-bottled Bordeaux from Medoc.
Anne, the manager at
Montmartre, was welcoming, charming, and kind,
and Jonathan, our server, was
genial, skilled, and knowledgeable.
These two delightful
French-Americans made it a perfect evening for us.
