Phing & Tham denotes food that is grilled and a method of making salads, respectively. Phing is traditional charcoal grilling. Tham is the tonal sound of ‘salads made in a mortar and pestle.’ We are presenting both in their most basic and delicious forms.

No foams, No airs. We hope you enjoy them!

                              Pesce 2 is a cozy neighborhood restaurant perched on the second floor of a townhouse with a bagel bakery on the first floor. The set-up might look odd at first sight, but we found it quite comfortable a few nights ago. The staff was knowledgeable and really wanted us to enjoy the meal but were not intrusive. The menu of mostly Asian grilled meats and sliced salads met my desire for a light meal and an antidote for too much heavy Thanksgiving-Christmas feasting. Although there were four other parties of diners, the room was blissfully quiet. I could talk in a normal conversational tone without having to raise my voice, a relief after too many cacophonous dining places. The wine list was short but reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend the place to residents of the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

                              Place empty except for us and one other couple. Service still poor. At our table, though the other table were apparently acquainted with her , and got lot of attention. Noise level when busy would probably be very high. Food ok (not great, but ok) though selection quite limited. Don’t bother with the green papaya salad, which was flavorless on its own. Prices decent. Cocktail tasted odd, depended on bitter and served without. When she asked how it was, (still with no mention that a key ingredient was missing) and when told that it was more interesting than tasty, replied that she’d won an award for it. Still no mention that what she’d served was not the cocktail requested. Second round, (different drink), when asked for more bitters, she finally admitted to being out of them. Took one, but not both, off the bill. We won’t be back and don’t recommend this place.

                              The food was just excellent. From the cocktails to the appetizers to the entrees to the after dinner drinks were mixed or cooked to perfection. Service first rate. This restaurant should not be a hidden gem!

                              Delighted to find this satellite in our neighborhood. The food is really good: with the same concentration on seafood as the original Pesce. The wine we had was pricy but really good. With taste like that I’ll happily pay the price. Rain drove us off the balcony, but it is a really fine place to dine weather permiting.

                              The food was terrible. Lobster bisque strange color, taste and texture, calamari and octopus tasted like the grill they were cooked on, and whole fish tasted different on one side than the other. Wait staff pleasant.

                              Without a doubt, one of the best meals I've had in DC in quite some time. We knew that Pesce had an outstanding reputation at its DC location, so my BF and I were excited to try this pop up style experience. We were not disappointed. It's obvious that the entire staff, from the host at the door to the table runners, are excited to be part of such a cool experience. Everything we ordered, from the ox tail scallop appetizer to the lobster main course, was outstanding. We can't recommend it enough.

                              My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about our dinner here, especially the food. We had the smoked salmon to start and a whole rockfish for the main course. May have been the best restaurant seafood I've had in a long time. It's a little hard to see from the street because it's sharing space with Bullfrog Bagels at Eastern Market.
