Vondeling at The National

Noble Savage (he said): The National is one of those restaurants that we’ve had on our list for the longest time, but somehow never managed to visit. So we jumped at the chance to visit when, somewhat serendipitously, Vondeling Wines invited us to attend a wine and food pairing, with …
