Peter Smith opened PS 7’s in 2006 in the ever-growing downtown Penn Quarter area of Washington, DC. He has since built a following for his flavorful culinary creations as well as bringing together a talented team including star mixologist Gina Chersevani and pastry chef Zak Miller.

“I appreciate taking the most unusual of pairings visually and creating them mentally,” says Smith. “It often turns into the most delicious of flavor combinations.” Turning thought into food, Smith will presents his version of Contemporary Modern Cuisine, with a whimsical touch. Serving mostly small plates and using farm-direct produce, highlights include the Torchon of Lobster with exotic melon, truffle gelée and roe wafer and Baby Carrot Terrine with horseradish foam, Muscat vinaigrette and red orach.

A fan of creating dishes in trios, examples include the Trio of Veal with barbequed ribs with molasses thyme veal jus, sautéed loin with wilted baby chard and braised breast with apricot and thyme jus. Another creation is Octopus Three Ways braised with red Thai curry, ceviche with yuzu, sake and red Chile granite and torchon with cilantro cucumber salad.

It comes down to innocence and adventure for this young diversified talent. We can’t wait to see what he creates for the exclusive VIP Chef’s Tasting Roomsection for the 10th Annual Sugar & Champagne Affair.
