The Obelisk must have changed. We had our mini-meal there about 15 years ago, with friends. We never returned because of the laughable portions.
My wife and I recently had a pleasant dinner at the Goodstone Inn in Middleburg, VA. Food was prepared and presented in an outstanding manner, but in microscopic portions. Now please understand that we are not looking to devour mass quantities....our combined weight is under 300 lbs and combined height is 11 ft 5 in.
After the "main course" we were joking about the portion size, and pretty disgusted. Fortunately there were several excellent ice cream establishments on the road back to Fairfax County.
Not the first time this has happened to us. Don't go to the Obelisk in DC or Chez Panisse in Berkeley, CA unless you eat a meal first.
Just say NO to nouvelle cuisine.
