"I went to Founding Farmers DC for my birthday. I had the meatloaf as main dish, a house specialty, which was served as a very big portion. It was quite good although on the heavy side. I also shared an onion and cheese dip with my wife as appetizer. The blood orange sorbet for dessert was excellent: both fresh and very tasty.
Overall, a fine lunch experience in the Foggy Bottom area of DC.

Guests who dine in the Main Dining Room at Colicchio & Sons can enjoy a menu focused on Seasonal Contemporary American Cuisine. Mr. Colicchio will improvise and explore with small-batch ingredients from the micro-producers and family farmers with whom he has forged decades-long relationships. In the Tap Room guests can enjoy a menu of specialties from the wood-burning oven. An extensive selection of artisan beers, as well as a distinctive wine list by the glass and bottle, will round out the experience. Colicchio & Sons is an excellent option to gather after a brisk walk on the High Line or a long day of work!<br /><br />Colicchio & Sons accepts Brunch, Lunch and Dinner Reservations in the Tap Room and Dinner Reservations only in the Main Dining Room. <br /><br />Colicchio & Sons will not be participating in NYC Winter Restaurant Week 2014.<br /><br />The Tap Room now has it's very own OpenTable page for online reservations- http://www.opentable.com/colicchio-and-sons-tap-room

"Excellent service. Very attentive. Very tasty pasta dish with rich hen mushroom sauce. The sorbet was fresh and flavorful. Only drawback: the duck as main dish was a but undercooked."

Belga cafe is a great place to eat typical Belgian cuisine. Combining an intriguing atmosphere with excellent, light and healthy interesting food. Belga Cafe is a little bit of Brussels on the Hill, with an open kitchen and a sidewalk cafe.

"I went to Belga Cafe for Valentine's special menu. The food was good (foie gras and Venison plus a special home-made dessert). Unfortunately, we had to wait for twenty minutes to be seated although we had a reservation. Nonetheless, my wife and I enjoyed our dinner.
I have one suggestion to improve the beer listing. As a Belgian citizen, I am disappointed by the draft beer selection which is always made of mediocre, second-rate Belgian beers such as Stella Artois and Palm. The draft list (which is of course a bit cheaper than bottles) should include at least one major abbey beer (Rochefort, Saint-Bernardus or Maredsous). This would make for a more complete and pleasant dining (or lunch) experience in the Belgian tradition.

La Chaumiere is as close as it gets to dining in a French country inn. Now entering its 37th year, La Chaumiere features traditional dishes like escargots en coquille, boudin blanc, quenelles of pike, cassoulet and Grand Marnier souffle. Chef Patrick's specials reflect a modern approach to seasonal produce, seafood and game with favorites like baked oysters, Dover sole and rabbit. La Chaumiere has won the "100 Best Restaurants" award 29 times since 1978!

"I went to La Chaumiere on Saturday night during DC restaurants week. The 3 course-set menu for 35$ included 'blanquette de veau' and Cornish hen', but both were no longer available when we arrived at 9PM, the time of our booking. Therefore, I only got two dishes (main course and dessert) for the same price instead.
The waiter also brought me the check before the dessert was even served. I thought it was rude and I should have been compensated for that by the owner who was present that night.
My wife ordered Profiterolles for dessert. She got only one on her plate! That's called stingy.
My Magret (duck breast) was well cooked and prepared. Unfortunately, our dining experience is not one to be remembered for the above mentioned reasons.

"I had the fixed new year's eve menu. The appetizer (snails) and main dish were both very good. The venison meat was tender and tasty. I also had a glass of red wine, a Chinon, that was surprisingly strong and deep. The only flaw was the cheese plate, which was stingy."
