DC native, Ari Gejdenson, has brought Acqua al 2, known around the world for true Tuscan cuisine, to Capitol Hill. Famous for its Bisteca alla Fiorentina, balsamic and blueberry fillets, variety of vegetarian pastas, and daily fresh fish selections, this warm and rustic restaurant offers an authentic dining experience that will transport you back to Florence.

"Took advantage of the innovative Italian fixed price lunch at Acqua Al 2 yesterday. It was such a creative, fun and appealing menu that two of us decided to share each course. Everything was delicious. The staff was friendly and attentive. We are planning to make lunch here a frequent thing.
Sirloin with blueberries was delicious. Pasta with eggplant and tomato sauce was cooked just right and tasty. The tiramisu and flourless chocolate cake seemingly disappeared before out eyes.
Can't wait to return for MORE."

'Field and Stream' with polished urban style - contemporary American cuisine using natural fresh flavors and vibrant presentation. Highlighting the seasons, local farms, and small batch brews with hand-crafted elegance.

"Had never been to Cedar, so, when a friend mentioned they'd extended their Restaurant Week I made a lunch reservation for a small group of retired friends. Enjoyed lunch with the complex parsnip soup, a delicious pheasant sausage which was a substitute for elk and a trio of sorbets. Others enjoyed the salad and a plentiful and tasty chicken. Only negative was the exclusion of the white chocolate lobster soup and inclusion of sandwiches instead of real entrees for a couple of choices. Many participating restaurants offer virtually the same choices for lunch and dinner and it would be nice if Cedar did the same."

Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines, under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, served up in a sleek and modern setting. Shared small plates, creative cocktails and unique Mediterranean wines make this spot one of DC’s top dining destinations.

"This is a great place for a group of friends to get together and share some tasty small plates. Wait staff was attentive and made great suggestions for the table of 5. Two issues were that it was too noisy and too hot near the fireplace."

The Source is the first fine dining restaurant in the nation’s capital headlined by Master Chef Wolfgang Puck. Designed by EDG, the three-level restaurant is the signature dining experience at the Newseum, an interactive museum of news. The Source offers two distinct dining experiences as well as a private room located on the lower level that seats up to 40 guests. The ground floor bar and lounge where guests enter offers approachable dining in a casual setting and features a traditional Japanese Izakaya menu offering sushi, sashimi, noodle dishes and authentic "Robata" grilled dishes. Upstairs, guests can enjoy a menu that features Puck’s modern take on Asian cuisine. The Source is the recipient of many awards and accolades including #3 ranking on Washingtonian Magazine's "Top 100 Restaurants" list, "2008 New Restaurant of the Year" Award and "2008 Restaurant of the Year" from DC Magazine plus has received three stars from Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema.

"Restaurant Week January 2014 for me included a wonderful lunch with friends at The Source on a raining Tuesday. While dining I even forgot about the rain which shows what a great lunch The Source offered for RW. Food was great and our waiter was a gem. Recommend them on all counts."
