Chef Geoff’s—Neighborhood Gem—Restaurant

February 14, 2010

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.
