My Faforites



The offerings at this nook of a cafe and wine bar are laden with local cheeses and meats, but a handful of dishes are perfect even for vegans: Salads, some of the soups and risotto can be made vegan. Don't forget to check the chalkboard, however, because the specials are among the best dishes the kitchen sends out.


The re-imagined restaurant has become one of the most dazzling places to dine.


Gallant service almost surpasses the delicious fish at this Palisades restaurant.


The small dining room leaves something to be desired, but the shellfish doesn't disappoint.


Fresh, local ingredients enliven every dish in chef Cathal Armstrong's dining room. The five- and nine-course tasting menus are gastronomic adventures.


Tom Power's refined cuisine is an excellent way to celebrate a special occasion. The blond wood finishes and gentle lighting add subtle touches to the two-story townhouse.


The Georgetown institution serves classic American fare in a comfortable setting that evokes the genteel murmuring of an old-time country club. This time of year, each dining room is festively decked.


Imagine an English courtyard in the heart of Dupont Circle.


Transport yourself to Paris with a meal on this restaurant's sidewalk cafe.
