St. Arnold’s is a popular Cleveland Park mussel restaurant. A must is the mussels cooked in duck fat.

"Even though the great bargain, Mussel Mondays, has gone up in price (from $10 for mussels and frites to $11 for the mussels and an extra $3 for the fries), it's still a great deal and the 20+ selection of sauces and broths the mussels are cooked in are all tasty. And the $5.00 New Belgium and Ommegang beers are also a steal."

"A great neighborhood spot. Food very good; great wine and draft beer choices. Very noisy inside on a Friday night. Service, as always, a bit slow and erratic, but worth it."

 Malaysia Kopitiam
Malaysia Kopitiam
Malaysia Kopitiam was established in the year 2000. The word 'kopitiam' which is a local word means coffee shop. Leslie and Penny Phoon are the owners of Malaysia Kopitiam. Originally, from Ipoh, Perak, Leslie and Penny have traversed the globe from Ipoh to Melbourne to Washington DC to fulfill their ambitions of operating a successful Malaysian restaurant abroad. Penny is the main chef. Many argue that the surest way to find out if a Malaysian restaurant is authentic is to benchmark its Po Piah, Satay and Roti Canai against Penang hawker stall standards. By Penang standards, Malaysian Kopitiam does fairly well.

"Sadly, Malaysia Kopitiam closed its doors Friday after fifteen years. I'm glad we got to go for one last excellent lunch."

"Went on a Fridayu; no problems, seated outdoors immediately. Nice to be off the street and in a patio like area. Food was very good; excellent beer and wine selection. Service seemed to be in 'learning curve' mode. Server seemed a little befuddled; flubbed one drink order. Assume she was recent grad and this may have been first job."

Lyon Hall is a modern bistro serving approachable Alsatian-inspired fare, including an extensive selection of house-made charcuterie and sausages. The menu changes with the season to highlight fresh produce from local farms, as do the pastries, desserts and fresh bread.The affordable wine list focuses on French selections, while the impressive beer list offers an extensive selection of European drafts and bottles. Located in an historic art deco building in the heart of downtown Clarendon, Lyon Hall is a vibrant neighborhood spot with a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Perfect for an elegant dinner in the stylish dining room, frankfurters and beer flights with friends at the lively bar, or enjoying a warm evening on the patio with a bottle of wine and selections from the dynamic cheese menu. The private room located in our mezzanine level offers a great spot for small to medium size groups enjoying a private meal or cocktail reception.

"I'd be Lyon' if I had bad things to say about Lyon Hall. Great draft beer selection, and a very helpful server who seemed to like and suggest special craftbrew offerings. Also, what's not to like about a giant soft pretzel the size of a Volkswagen?! All the food was excellent. It's a bit noisy and, being a Friday evening, crowded, but we had a reservation and got seated immediately. Terrific meal."
