In business for about nine years, Chef Geoff’s Wesley Height’s restaurant never disappoints. The Contemporary American Cuisine is always wonderful. The service is always cheerful, if not always efficient. On a recent visit, I had the Big Shrimp and Very Gouda Grits and my dining companions had the Cider Glazed Salmon and the Sweet Fried Calamari Caesar Big Salad. None of us left a crumb on our plates. We purposely saved room for dessert because this is where Chef Geoff shines. We split orders of the Rich Chocolate Cake with a Molten Center and the Granny Smith Apple Tart with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce. Both desserts were to die for. No dinner is complete without Chef Geoff’s great-tasting coffee.
By DC standards, Chef Geoff’s is moderately priced. The restaurant is always packed and the bar is lively. It’s a neighborhood restaurant that doesn’t pander and we’re lucky it have it.
