Brabo Restaurant Gets Great Write-up in the Examiner

Recently, Jeff Dufour, the Examiner Restaurant critic, gave his thoughts on the recently opened Brabo by Robert Wiedmaier. Here’s an excerpt:

It’s been quite a year already for Chef Robert Wiedmaier: He’s celebrating the 10th anniversary of his first restaurant, Marcel’s. He’s been nominated for Chef of the Year by the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington, and he’s opened his third eatery, BRABO, in the new Lorien Hotel in Old Town Alexandria.

Like the elegant Marcel’s and the more casual Brasserie Beck downtown, Wiedmaier’s newest addition springs forth from his Belgian background and his devotion to classical French technique. Unlike those two, however, BRABO is not named for one of his children. Instead, BRABO takes its name from Silvius Brabo, a legendary Roman general, whose statue graces the Grand Place in Antwerp.

What are your thoughts on Brabo and it’s cousins, the Brabo Tasting Room and the Butcher’s Block?
