The Sunday Deal at Trummer’s on Main
This has been a really tough year for my husband and I. Unfortunately the loss of my Dad has been followed by the loss of Matthew’s Grandfather. He was really a gracious, kind and hilarious man that really made it a pleasure to get to be a part of his family.
More bad news Readers: I have been eating a lot of mediocre meals recently. I am not sure if it is the prolonged recession, the heat, people off on Summer vacation, but some of my recent meals have really been underwhelming highlighted by two really mediocre meals at Northside Social and Siroc.
Happily though there is some good news and that is that Trummer’s on Main is still spectacular. And even during non-restaurant week they have a fabulous Sunday deal. It is three courses for $38 and $5 glasses of wine from a select list.
We joined friends for an early Sunday dinner. We started down at the bar enjoying some really well crafted cocktails and Virginia wines. Hubby had the Main Street cocktail which was a great mix of flavors, really highlighted by the cinnamon. I had Barboursville Sparkling Wine. We sampled some of the truffled popcorn available on the bar menu which also had Parmesan cheese and was decadent.
We then went upstairs for dinner. I enjoyed a $5 glass of Norton wine right from Clifton, Virginia that was fruity, but nice with all the rich flavors I had.
I started with the mussels and curried quinoa that was nicely balanced and very refreshing as it had a nice hint of lemon and a balsamic reduction. I tried Hubby’s Mulligatawny soup and really enjoyed it as well, lots of celery and lime flavor in the broth.
For an entree I had the lamb brisket which also was really good. The cut is fatty, so if you don’t like fat you wouldn’t like this dish, but it tasted delicious and was served with simple vegetables, sauteed in some butter. I ended with a cheese course as I wasn’t feeling it for sweets, and that was nicely presented with some nuts, honey and fig bread. There were three samplings a wisonsin cows milk gouda, wisconsin cows milk cheese similar to a brie, but a little more flavor then a soft sheeps cheese that I forget the origin of. I also have to note that I love their breads here.
As a parting note we were given chocolate truffles, so I had a sweet bite after all.
The Sunday deal is a really good deal for some really nicely made and presented food. And stellar service without having to battle restaurant week crowds. And the drive out and back on Sunday is one of the easiest times to drive on I-66 West. Their bar menu also was drool worthy- I will be back for this. We had no problem getting a reservation, which is incredible since I would say this is one of the best meals I have had in the D.C. area in a long time now.
