Mr. Kuettel tends not to mark his wines up more than about double the retail price. That's gracious and reasonable, and it's a reason to single out Trestle on Tenth, an otherwise uneven neighborhood restaurant whose individualism doesn't work as well when it comes to food. - Frank Bruni
I enjoyed my butter lettuce starter and salmon for the main, but my friend was not as lucky with his meal. His quail was too salty, the risotto that came with the starter had a strange consistency and the lamb was overspiced. The gratinee - while heavy - had a nice chewy consistency. Service overall was decent, but not stellar. We had to ask for our wine with dinner three times before it came.
simple dishes made really, really well. take their handmade mustard for example. it's the best i've had and it's just mustard. the handmade sausages are spectacular. i recommend trying some of the more adventurous items. great service. will be back for more.
