Finally got out to Inox in Tysons Corner, the new Jonathan Krinn place. Very good for DC, but not quite living up to its potential, at least on our visit.
Sweetbreads were oversalted. Vennison Rossini was really outstanding. (They clearly aren’t trying to do ‘seasonal’). Desserts were well-designed on the plate but mediocre, made up for by excellent petite fours.
Service tried to be nice – very friendly, attention to detail in descriptions of the dishes, but the kitchen had a hard time getting both of our entrees out at the same time and the sauce on my wife’s plate had dried under a heat lamp. Bread was a good, though less interesting, than it was at 2941 [choices were garlic, olive, or pumpernickel and they did continually bring around plenty of it).
Complimentary valet, and they do manage to track coat check by table without the need for a claim ticket. But they failed to be ready with jackets, we had to point into the dining room at which table we had come from..
Will return at the price point (appetizers mid-teens, entrees low 30s) but if it gets more expensive as 2941 did, it will no longer be worth it.
