"Ambrosia fit for the gods" is on the menus at Frank Ruta's Cleveland Park New American, and fans swear the "quiet", "dimly lit" back room's prix fixe (no à la carte) is "worth" the "expense", while noting the "casual" front cafe is "one of the best bargains in town", with its "succulent" burgers, entrees and a bread basket "worth paying for" – and, indeed, they do charge; service matches the kitchen's "high competency", and a market annex sells "superb" desserts and savories.
