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

"Go downstairs to the basement and and have your meal there. Much quieter.
Great Mussels, good beers on tap. This time, it was a half-litre of Palm for only $5.00. A good deal for a good Belgian beer.

Chez Billy Sud is a neighborhood, French restaurant situated in the heart of Georgetown. Executive Chef Brendan L’Etoile’s menu showcases the cuisine of Southern France. Chez Billy Sud offers hand crafted cocktails and a French focused wine list in an inviting atmosphere steeped in history and conviviality. Like its historically located sister restaurant Chez Billy, Chez Billy Sud celebrates tradition while facilitating the transcendent present when a fine meal and a well-paired wine bring utter bliss.

"A small, classy little "French" restaurant, located at the site of the departed La Ruche, Chez Billy Sud was all it was hyped up to be! Spectacular food; an excellent wine, beer and drinks list; wonderful desserts. A very knowledgeable and helpful waiter who steered us to the right choices whenever we had a decision to make. Hopefully it will be around for a long while. Looking forward to the Spring when they open up the patio area on the side."

Ardeo+Bardeo, located in the historic district of Cleveland Park and within walking distance to the National Zoo, is a neighborhood favorite serving modern American cuisine. The restaurant underwent a major renovation in November 2010 to enhance the modern bistro and wine bar, uniting the two restaurants with a 24-seat island bar. Executive Chef Jonathan Dearden has crafted a menu which features cured meats, soups and salads, savory snacks, seasonal vegetables dishes and brick oven baked pizzas.

"Hadn't been to Ardeo in a number of years but was quite underwhelmed this visit. Only two draft beer choices? They truly need to work on that."

For years, owners Nat Ongsangkoon & Dia Khanthongthip have dreamed of bringing Thai market foods to DC, and are excited about the canvas Soi 38 presents. As natives of Bangkok, Thailand, they grew up relishing trips to the night market for some of the best food in Thailand, and are excited to bring this collection of street foods to Washington, DC.<br /><br />Inspired by the underground eateries around Bangkok’s night markets, Soi 38 features creative Thai street foods, hearty Thai favorites and a bar program featuring draft and bottled cocktails to DC’s West End neighborhood.<br /><br />The name Soi 38 is based on the iconic street food district and night market of the same name in Bangkok. As evening falls in Thailand, the Soi 38 night market transforms into a high energy, open-air food market crowded with stalls and rickety furniture where vendors dish out authentic Thai food favorites until the early-morning hours.

"Great spicing levels. They don't cool down the dishes for the Westerners. The squid legs appetizer and my dry curry were nice and spicy."

 Second State Restaurant
Second State Restaurant
On December 17, 1787, Pennsylvania became the second state to ratify the Constitution. Playing on the historical significance of this date, Second State Restaurant is an elegant homage to Pennsylvania with craft cocktails and a seasonal, farm to table menu. Set in a refurbished row house, diners can expect a cozy cool atmosphere, with iron and crystal accents mixed in with distressed metals that speak to materials indigenous to Pennsylvania.

"2nd State just opened a few weeks back, so I'll cut them some slack. On a positive note, the PA draft beer selection is nice -- had some good imperial stouts. Our server said that the main courses were large, so that's why 'sides to share' are sold separately and are large. The sides were great -- brussel sprouts with bacon have become cliche but these were a real, sweet/sour treat! The main dish, a 10oz ancho rubbed pork chop, was cooked bicely, but was waaaay too salty. They have a nice selection of rye whiskies, great for after a big meal.
I'm looking forward to going back during the week and trying their happy hour."

Internationally acclaimed Chef Richard Sandoval combines traditional culinary techniques with fresh, high quality ingredients to create authentic Mexican comfort food at El Centro D.F. Designed to reflect the bustling street shops and colorful rituals of everyday life in Mexico, the restaurant is comprised of three distinct dining spaces all under one roof. The Taqueria features a casual atmosphere where a lively open kitchen serves authentic favorites. The Tequileria allows guests to dine or lounge as mixologists craft Latin cocktails from 200 Tequilas & Mezcals. Along the rooftop guests raise a glass at two open-air bars. Warm, Latin-inspired service and welcoming hospitality will round out your experience.<br /><br /><br />
