DCIST: Seven Reasons Is A Fine-Dining Trip Around The World On 14th Street

Enrique Limardo wants to take diners on a trip around the world at his new restaurant Seven Reasons. The 14th Street spot’s co-owner and executive chef is fusing ideas from his Venezuelan heritage and international cooking assignments.

His Duck Magret with Salsa Verde, for example, is a dish he says was inspired by the idea of a Mexican who gets lost in Dubai. Limardo serves up a duck breast seasoned with sumac and other Middle Eastern spices, and combines it with his take on a Mexican salsa verde that he makes from tomatillo, cilantro, avocados, and lime juice.
