Restaurant Review – The Caucus Room

“I have learned the difference between a cactus and a caucus. On a cactus, the pricks are on the outside.” – Morris Udall

The Caucus Room is one of those DC institution type restaurants where you’re likely to run into some House committee chair lunching with a lobbyist.

The meal was stellar and the company even more so.  I had the salmon. It was delicious and perfectly flaky.  Dining companions had the filet mignon, which was really good, high quality beef.

The real rave, however, was the sharable sides.  We got the mac and cheese, which was made with a good, sharp cheddar and we also got the onion strings. Those were awesome, crispy and made with sweet onions.



Other than getting a bunch of sides, there’s no good vegetarian option on the menu, so keep that in mind before dining.
