DC Spotlight: Lunch at SEI

About a year ago, shortly after I started this blog, I recommended dining at SEI to celebrate the National Cherry Blossom Festival

Since it's that time of the year again (although you wouldn't know it given the cold weather and still-bare trees), I thought I'd revisit SEI, which recently added a tasty tofu bibimbap entree to its lunch menu.  If you're in town visiting, this is still a great place to catch a quick but elegant Asian-themed meal in DC's conveniently located Penn Quarter neighborhood.

Tofu bibimbap (tofu, fried egg, watercress, rice, shitake, and gochujang sauce)

SEI also serves delicious cocktails and has a spacious bar/lounge area, where you can stay warm until the DC weather improves and the trees finally bloom.  Don't worry, it will be worth the wait!
