Spanish | Penn Quarter, District of Columbia

My wife and I had a wonderful date night here. Food and drinks were off the charts. I’m still fantasizing about the taste of the calamari. I regret that I didn’t try the pallella. Oh well. Guess I’ll be coming back soon! More

It was restaurant week and it ROCKED! Amazing plates, the flavors are fantastic, and the staff are so thoughtful and intentional about creating a wonderful experience. A member of our group went to use the restroom and came back to his napkin folded! Fave dishes are the yellowtail jalapeño and wagyu foie gras dumplings. Thanks, Nobu!!! More

Dyllan's Raw Bar Grill

American | Georgetown, District of Columbia

Awesome! That's the best way to describe this Gem! Georgetown's best new restaurant in my opinion. You can go to all the fine dining places(CUT, Fiola, etc) or the "old" spots(Clyde's, Martin's, etc) but this place gets it right. Nice portions, great prices, not cheap but value, inventive menu (I even noticed CUT is copying their Raw bar, just like Wolfgang, can't leave the neighborhood restaurants alone) and most importantly a fresh inventive menu. Anybody who lives in the area should check them out we need more restaurants of this quality. Five stars all the way. More

Southern | Arlington, Virginia - DC Suburbs

Food was very good. Place was lively and crowded for brunch; a bit too loud for my liking though. Service was mildly slow but probably because it was busy. We were seated right by where the food is brought out from the kitchen and I like how they enlist whoever is available to deliver food to the table. It was not a great look though when someone brought my food to the table and couldn't tell me what it was. That's just a minor nit however. I look forward to going back and am excited to try it for dinner. More

Afternoon Tea | Downtown, District of Columbia

We had Tea Service at both the Trump International DC and The St Regis Hotel DC over the weekend. We enjoyed our food and experience at the Benjamin Bar & Lounge much more and commend the Trump International in their exquisite hotel and surroundings. We were also treated very nicely by the Bell and Valet staff as well as our driver in the hotel car. Just an amazing experience for myself and my daughter all around. We hope to stay there on our next visit. More

American | Arlington, Virginia - DC Suburbs

From seasonal ingredients to locally-sourced produce, dining with us is a harmonious blend of fine foods in a casual rustic American setting. Our menu is a rich and plentiful assortment of poultry, seafood, and vegetarian courses where our beer and brewing ingredients are often repurposed to add subtle flavors or crucial ingredients. This farm-to-table dining experience is apparent not only in our dinner service but also our lunch and decadent brunch menu. From savory to sweet our brunch is best paired with a flight of brews or our mimosa flight board. Whether you just stopping in for a snack or staying for a full course we have options for both that won't disappoint.More

Discover Washington, D.C.

An international city with the food chops to show for it, Washington D.C. is brimming with new restaurants, coffee houses and spirited bars. And, while tablecloth dining has it’s place here (diplomats gotta eat), so does the casual yet delicious lunch spot (interns gotta eat, too). Near the Capitol, historic eateries and classic menus are favored by many. Excellent Filipino food can be found in Columbia Heights. Near Georgetown, upscale bistros and farm-to-table spots are the order of the day, and Adams Morgan is home to many international restaurants and locally owned cafes.
