Jeff and I went out for dinner to celebrate his birthday. We went to Graffiato in DC's China Town. Jeff and I are fans of the tv show Top Chef and Mike Isabella is the chef/owner. He was the runner up on Top Chef All-Stars.

Flat bread with pepperoni dipping sauce and various olives.

Crispy pork cheeks with sweet potato and beautiful hand crafted spaghetti.
The meal was all "small plates" and we shared everything.

The humble chicken breast was seriously elevated here with tiny potatoes and pesto sauce.

Terrible lighting here, but such happy faces. It was a great evening.

In fact, we enjoyed it so much, we went back last weekend when Jeff's parents (also Top Chef fans) were visiting. Mike happened to be in the kitchen and was happy to snap a picture with us.

I should not have read this before dinner. My humble chicken soup pales in comparison! LOL! The dinner looks so tasty. Happy Birthday to Jeff!
