Domku makes the WaPo's Spring Dining Guide

Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema's seasonal dining guides are respected lists of what you should check out (or avoid.) This spring's guide of 20 restaurants includes Domku, the Scandinavian/Eastern European spot at 8th and Upshur, and Sietsema gives it a glowing review. (Note that the star scale is more like traditional restaurant reviews than Yelp with 1 being terrible -- so Domku's 2 stars means good, not bad.)

Sietsema notes the new meat-free Tuesdays with vegetarian Swedish meatballs (mushroom, lentils and parmesan), Czech potato pancakes, and the infused aquavit, an alcohol similar to vodka infused with herbs or fruit. I'm a big fan of the dill aquavit they have.

Nice to see that a local, tasty spot is on the list. If you haven't been, check it out.

The owner of Domku is horrible to her employees. I will never go there again.

I used to work there, and she was has no compassion for people. It's why the turnover there is so high. It was not uncommon for her to bring employees to tears with her belittling remarks. The food is good, but I'd rather eat somewhere that treats their employees like people.

I hate Domku. Had one of the worst service experiences of my life there.

Huh, interesting. I've always enjoyed it.
