Reviews for Tenpenh

over a year ago

Ten Penh is a solid Pacific Rim restaurant in DC – I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food and ambiance based on previous reviews, which under-rated my experience. Great, fresh seafood with an Asian flair - the calamari salad is great, the mussels are amazingly fresh and tender. I received spectacular service at the bar alone, something that rarely happens while sitting at a table of one. While somewhat generic "Pacific Rim" decor, the bar and atmosphere make up.

Asian-fusion fare on America's Main Street. – The Scene
Buttoned-down Washington is nowhere to be seen on the corner of 10th and Pennsylvania, where chef Cliff Wharton entertains people with food that's Asian by way of American innovation. The lively room matches the food: A shopping trip to Hong Kong, Thailand and Vietnam by the owners yielded custom-made teak chairs, wooden Mongolian warriors, rich silks here, bronze bowls there. The crowd is more Hugo Boss than Brooks Brothers.

The Details
The staff is well-versed, there are fine wines by the glass, and no detail is too small--from the cool towels that greet guests in summer to the hot ones that precede a meal in winter.
