Métier, the tasting menu-centric restaurant Eric Ziebold is operating below Kinship, is now serving diners.
The restaurant quietly opened its doors a few days ago, a rep confirmed today, catering initially to smaller seatings of diners, many familiar with the chef's work at CityZen. The American-influenced 36-seat restaurant is serving a tasting menu priced $200 per person for a seven-course dinner (that fee includes service, but not tax or beverages). A la carte beverages are available, as well as wine pairings priced at $100 and $185 per person (the wine list emphasizes French and Californian wines). The restaurant also has a dress code, encouraging men to wear jackets.
Ziebold's Kinship opened in Shaw in December, offering a la carte dishes like lobster French toast. Both spaces were designed by D.C.-based Darryl Carter.
