What better place to be, than three blocks from the White House, walking distance from the Mall, across the street from the Warner Theatre, and right in the heart of Downtown? For over 8 years, Chef Geoff's Downtown has happily served Capitol Hill, theatergoers, business brokers, neighborhood friends and D.C. visitors alike with our New American Cuisine. Our expansive menu is designed to please. Enjoy 1/2 Price CG Burgers and $8.95 Pizza Pies during our phenomenal happy hour. Join us every Sunday for Brunch and every Monday for Half Price Wines. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to seeing you soon. Cheers! Chef Geoff

"Beet & goat cheese ravioli were what I ordered and I enjoyed it tremendously - it's a fantastic dish, complemented with a light, creamy sauce, sweet onions and some kind of nuts. My friends had similarly delicious, unique dishes."

*** NOW SERVING SUSHI TILL 2AM ON W-ENDS AND 1AM ON W-DAYS*** Fujimar is an Asian-Latino, nouveau cuisine restaurant serving ceviche, lobster, sushi and more. Chef Mendizabal’s dishes reflect the confluence of Asian and Latin cuisines in a menu that interprets how Asian immigrants to Latin America adapted their cuisine to the New World ingredients and Latin culture. Meat, seafood and produce are carefully selected to the highest standards highlighting their own true flavors and origin. In particular, Fujimar’s ceviche and sushi bar will feature unusual delicacies like Tasmanian King Salmon and Hapu’up’u. Bar chefs Ari and Micah Wilder designed Fujimar’s beverage program utilizing locally sourced and seasonal ingredients in drinks created using classic techniques. The wine list features imports produced by artisan winemakers, ranging from the mineral-laden Austrian Gruner Veltliner and German Rieslings to Cru Beaujolais and Priorat.

"Lodged inside the Marriott Metro Center Hotel, Fire & Sage has a built-in clientele, but remains largely unknown in a neighborhood bursting with more ostentatious eateries like Bibiana & Cap City Brewhouse across the street. That only means that you can always get a table here, but the food is healthy, original, savory and affordably priced, which to me spells secret neighborhood gem. My favorite dishes are the beet salad and the flatbread pizzas, but other dishes are also delicious."

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.

"Not only were the items we ordered tasty, the portions were quite generous in size - even though we shared them between two people, there was still enough to take home. As this was my first visit, I will definitely like to return to try other dishes and linger longer."

Upon opening in September 2009, Bibiana instantly became one of Washington’s most popular hot spots.<p>Nick Stefanelli’s regional Italian fare features a variety of well executed small plates, antipasti and standouts including his whole roasted fish.<p>His cuisine helped earn Bibiana a glowing review and two-and-a-half stars from food critic Tom Sietsema of The Washington Post, and four stars from DC Modern Luxury critics. It also secured a place on Washingtonian’s list of the top one hundred restaurants in the nation’s capital. In June 2010 Bibiana was a finalist for “Best New Restaurant” and Nick Stefanelli won the “Rising Star Chef” from The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington. In October 2010, Stefanelli was also announced as the winner of StarChefs.com “Rising Star” award and Bibiana was named to Esquire’s exclusive list of 20 “Best New Restaurants 2010.”
