City Paper is not for tourists
On May 3 chef Tom Power announced on the foodie site Don Rockwell that Corduroy has re-opened. The restaurant, which “serves the best food of the season, with much of the restaurant’s produce coming from local farms,” according to the site, was formerly located on K Street in the Four Points. It has moved into a row house on 9th Street across from the Convention Center. The menu sounds quite tasty with such dishes as carpaccio of lobster with drawn butter and chervil and peppered rare big eye tuna with sushi rice and hijiki. A bonus for vegetarians: There is a melange of seasonal vegetables for an entree. A nonbonus for wheelchair users: Since the restaurant is in a historic building, it is not handicapped accessible.
