Guide Review - Masa 14 Restaurant Review - Washington DC
The menu is divided into small sections: Chilled Small Plates, Hot Small Plates, Tacos, Rice & Noodles and Wood-Burning Oven, providing an array of options of Latin-Asian fare. If you enjoy trying a variety of different dishes, there's plenty to choose from. Dishes range from ceviche & tiradito, sushi rolls and soups & salads to hot plates like Kobe Beef and Pork Meatballs and Beef Tenderloin with chimichurri. With so many interesting dishes on the menu, I wish I had a hardier appetite. We especially enjoyed the Temaki Hand Rolls, Thai Chicken Flatbread and the Green Curry Chicken. The Mexican Chocolate Tart is a perfect sweet ending to your meal.
The decor at Masa 14 is casual and comfortable combining a variety of interesting textures - original brick and timber construction with steel, wood, and concrete weaved throughout the open floor plan. The dining area has a variety of seating configurations, and offers private dining space that can be reserved for groups.
Masa 14 is home to Washington’s first Tequila Lounge, complete with DJ booth, which serves 100 different varieties of tequila. A 65-foot bar offers an extensive selection of international wines, sakes and 14 beers on tap, and will host guest DJs including Washington native Dimitris George who will be spinning on Fridays.
