Maple Ave Restaurant @ Vienna, VA

pork belly and i went to the maple ave for din din today. we made a reservation online and the restaurant was pretty empty when we got there. the place is pretty small.

service was excellent and fast. probably because there were only two tables including us.

pork belly and i have gained a million lbs in the last a few days. so fatt

the chef’s last name is Ma, so i assumed that he is asian/chinese. i do find their food a lil asian fusion.

bread:

shrimp & grits
jumbo tiger shrimp, venison blueberry sausage,
red onions, piquillo peppers, stoneground grits

crème fraiche chicken wings
kendall farms crème fraiche, korean chili paste

steamed mussels
PEI mussels, saffron coconut broth, thai chiles,
chinese chorizo, grilled crostinis
i liked these the best.

baked mac
gruyere vermont cheddar mornay, rotini,
herbs de provence panko crust

mushroom asparagus risotto
mushroom duxelle, fresh asparagus,
swiss gruyere cheese, crostinis

the food was very good but didnt wow me, probably because i was really full from lunch. pretty flavorful and creative. good to try.
