To celebrate the start of spring and the re-opening of Equinox Restaurant’s atrium, the Yelp Elite Squad gathered last night for Yelp’s March Equinox.

Elite yelpers sampled items from Chef Todd Gray’s inventive menu including upside down onion soup with house bacon and gruyere, crispy fluke with black orzo and preserved lemon and raviolini of organic local veal with lentil ragout and shaved pecorino. Cookies from Equinox’s pastry chef, Melanie Parker, quickly disappeared once spotted.

Libby F, Laura V, Meredith M and others could be found sipping tea cocktails affectionately re-named “The Yelper” for the evening. The man behind the cocktails, Equinox’s master mixologist, Simo Amhandi was recently nominated “Restaurant employee of the year” by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW). Winners won’t be announced until the Rammy Restaurant Awards gala next month, but yelpers have a clear favorite!

At the end of the night, DC’s lucky elites went home with their hot new '08 hoodies. What can we say? These days, it's all about being Elite!
