Locally sourced ingredients help support small farms and prevent russian dressing and french fries from entering into awkward green-card marriages with american cheese. Indulge in unions of local flavor with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of New American fare and drinks at Addie’s in Rockville.
High-fived by the Washington Post, Addie’s sets the culinary stage with an eclectic spread of fresh seafood and ingredients harvested from a slew of local farms. The dinner menu spotlights dishes such as sautéed spanish mackerel delicately serenaded by grated pasta and tomato-anchovy fondue ($21), as well as a locally raised pork chop chaperoned by pumpkin grits, turnips, and brussels sprouts ($24). Diners can fortify meals with desserts ($8–9), wines, or an impenetrable fortress of toothpicks. Addie’s lunch menu showcases lighter fare, such as sautéed shrimp and stone-ground grits ($16) or the fried oyster po boy loaded with cornmeal-coated Chincoteague oysters and chipotle remoulade ($12), which adds a creamy punch rivaled only by a boxing glove filled with ranch dressing.
Rehabbed from a home, Addie’s causal dining room offers ample indoor seating situated amongst soft yellow hues juxtaposed by black-framed artwork. The outdoor patio’s breezy area boasts black-iron tabletops, sun-deflecting umbrellas, and manicured shrubbery.
