Jardenea is a freshly new, “Farm to Fork Concept,” that practices sustainable environmentally friendly techniques. Our goal is to bring a better awareness of food, health, and well-being to your life while insuring to leave the land a better place for the next generation. We strive to give the complete dining experience with not only the cuisine but our signature cocktails and our seasonally changed wine list. The Cuisine that we create is globally influenced and locally produced whenever possible. Our chefs have a deep appreciation for farm fresh products but also realize these products could come at a great cost and leave a large carbon footprint. While keeping this in the forefront we only source products from the finest farms, fisheries, foragers and artisans that believe in the same vision. The menus are changed with the season and reflect the regional flavors to maximize freshness and minimize the carbon footprint.

"Jardenea was a pleasant surprise. Diverse menu, pleasant service with good food. We went during restaurant week and were not planning to order from that menu, but the menu was broad and covered all we wanted to eat. There was only one dessert offered (carrot cake(, which I would skip at any time."

Founding Farmers, the Greenest Restaurant in DC, offers fresh Farm-to-Table, sustainable, American inspired true food and drink.  Our menus include classic dishes made from scratch, inspired by the heartland with sustainably farmed products, with locally sourced items and in-season vegetables and fruits whenever possible. <br /><br />Guests can gather around one of many community tables and enjoy great family dinner dishes like pot pie, pot roast, roasted chicken, big green salads, rustic farm sandwiches, soups, and rich, delectable pies and other desserts from our seasonal menus, in a comfortable modern farmhouse setting.<br /><br />The restaurant is upscale casual, which welcomes business casual dress, and dress that would be appropriate in a nice restaurant; this includes jeans and athletic wear, and warm-weather clothing, including shorts.<br />

"Other than the crowds, dinner was thoroughly enjoyable and much better than I remembered. Food was very good and diverse. Wait staff was friendly and efficient, but did not make you feel like you were getting pushed out. We had a curtain to make and they succeeded doing it while allowing us to enjoy the meal."

History has been written inside the walls of the Wharf, with its 1790's style architecture featuring original wood columns and beams that are charred black from a Civil War fire. Since 1971, satisfied diners have been heading to The Wharf in Old Town for whole Maine lobster, local soft shell crabs and prime steaks. The restaurant has recently been renovated and remodeled and the menu updated to include many contemporary seafood items along with their traditional Chesapeake Bay creations.

"All in all a pleasant experience. Crab cakes were very good, but the Bronzini was no better than average."

"The food was good, commensurate with its cost. The service, however, was outstanding. The salad for one of the diners was too peppery and she did not eat much of it. Without fanfare, the waiter noticed it, asked quietly and brought out another salad. All in all, a very favorable experience."

Created by renowned Executive Chef Barry Koslow, Pinea serves contemporary European dishes with a focus on France, Italy and Spain. An exceptional selection of local vegetables and seasonal meats and seafood are enhanced by flavor profiles popular in these regions—citrus; fresh herbs, including lavender and rosemary; and curated olive oils. Feast on such menu highlights as handmade pastas and housemade spice blends, along with impeccably fresh and carefully sourced seafood like whole grilled branzino. Share bold dishes inspired by Italy’s merenda (afternoon snack): roasted serrano ham-wrapped figs with blue cheese, as well as pissaladiere topped with caramelized onions, black olives and boquerones.<br />Complement your plate with an esoteric wine from a southern European region such as Campania, Valencia or Languedoc Roussillon, or a unique craft cocktail or beer.

"New restaurant, but has issues. Music would get very loud and diners had to ask for it to be turned down. Food was very salty and portions were incredibly small. Don't see going back there."

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 11 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

"you don't go there for the food, the service or the ambiance. You go there because it is there and predictable."
