Bobby Van’s Grill marks the return of the powerful New York City chop shop to the downtown D.C. area but with a new twist. This eclectic New American Steakhouse now boasts a slightly more casual family friendly atmosphere as well as catering to the Washington politician. This 536-seat D.C. destination is fully loaded! There’s four private, intimate and upscale dining rooms with their own bar and bar services. Two 40-foot long bars can be found with friendly bartenders serving strong drinks and even stronger conversations. The main dining room boasts views of both New York Avenue and the plush marble atrium of the adjoining building amidst its beautiful water fountain. This is an ideal place to meet for power lunches, family gatherings and late night dinners in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

"Had a blind date, and this was the choice - it didn't disappoint, with only one minor exception - there was a big VIP party just getting started (think it was Speaker Boehner) as we arrived (on time for our reservation) and they just couldn't handle us right then. We ended up waiting about 30 min in the bar, no one came to get us, but when we wandered back to the hostess stand, we were then seated promptly. From then on, it was fantastic!!! Super food, great wine list, great service, and a nice place to get to know someone new while making a good first impression."

"As always, a great place before a Caps game! Service was a bit slower than usual - especially at the end, when you're trying to get out. But that's an anomaly - this remains my go-to place before Verizon Center events!"

Asia Nine's design draws inspiration from different Asian cultures. Jewel tones and rich woods envelop guests with a warm and exotic atmosphere. Elements of Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian, and Vietnamese including a full service sushi bar, bar & lounge.

Celebrity Chef Todd English is bringing a taste of Mexico to Washington DC by name of MXDC. An exciting new addition to an area in close proximity to the White House, MXDC brings a fresh perspective on Mexican cuisine while adding liveliness to an area known more for politics and business. This modern Mexican restaurant caters to business professionals whether they are looking to have a lunch meeting, let loose at happy hour with one of their signature margaritas, or just satisfying a craving for some delicious food. English appointed J.C. Pavlovich, who hails from Tijuana, to helm the kitchen. Iron Chef America fans may recognize Pavlovich from his reoccurring role as a sous chef on the show- he has supported Julian Medina and Bobby Flay.<br /><br />General Manager: Mcgarrit Franco

"Great place to go if you've got a divergence of opinions on Asian food - I had Japanese, my date, Chinese. Plenty of unusual dishes on the menu from Malaysia, especially. Easy walk to the game after, good service so no trouble making it there for puck drop!"

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.<br /><br />For all those who love seafood in Crystal City, the world really can be your oyster. Choose from among the 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish we serve simply prepared, 365 days a year.<br /><br />In season, our patio seating is a lure for those who choose the fresh seafood and fresh air combo.<br /><br />Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. We’ve received a boatload of accolades including being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.
