French/Inventive: Chez Nous

French/Inventive: Chez Nous
December 2014

This local hideout offers intrigue and deliciously intriguing dishes aplenty. Set in a tiny single house in off-the-tourist-path Elliotborough, the restaurant has no sign and accepts no reservations. Husband-and-wife chefs Jill Mathias and Juan Cassalett craft a handwritten, Southern French-inflected menu of six dishes that change daily and rarely repeat. A recent offering: an earthy mushroom and herb salad with pecorino, flounder with apples and cider vinegar, and butterscotch budino. Mais oui—they can surprise us every night. 6 Payne Ct.,
