Nancy’s Hustle and Bustle might be an apt name for this cozy, crazy-busy EaDo hot spot. We led off with the famous corn porridge sourdough with chèvre butter and chive oil. Wow! Two other “small plates”—several small lamb dumplings with a spicy tomato vinaigrette and crispy garlic and glazed sweet potato with fab lime yogurt, salsa macha, and cilantro—had the four of us fork-fighting. Our large plates included a two-patty burger on an English muffin with all the fixin’s and great fries, pan-roasted snapper on smooth white bean puree with pickled pepper salad, roasted duck breast a l’orange with rice grits, and a plate of spaghetti with chile butter, crab, Parmesan, and bread crumbs. The servers are well trained, obliging, friendly, and constantly moving. Reservations are mostly a must.
