2010 Rising Star Chef David Varley crafts intricate, sophisticated cuisine that focuses on intensifying flavor with herbs and vegetables freshly gathered from the on-the-property garden that Varley helped expand. And it’s here that he finds his inspiration, utilizing modern technique to prepare sorrel, micro greens, black radishes, and more underappreciated veggies. It may be called Bourbon Steak but Varley refuses to be boxed in by the steakhouse genre. He balances slick dishes like Sustainable Shrimp and Razor Clam Ceviche, Young Coconut, Cashew, and Shaved Pineapple with the old steakhouse reliables. He steps outside the Washingtonian comfort zone—with fabulous results—at this hip Michael Mina restaurant. Moreover, Riesling enthusiast and Sommelier Julian Mayor works in tandem with Varley to create unexpected pairings.
