Proof is a wine-centric restaurant serving Modern American cuisine.<br /><br />The casual, elegant feel to this Penn Quarter destination is reflected throughout Executive Chef Haidar Karoum’s menu. Proof showcases the best local, organic and sustainable ingredients in clean, beautiful preparations, an extensive international selection of cheese and charcuterie, as well as a wine list containing over 40 by-the-glass selections and 1,000 different bottles. <br />

"Extraordinary high-end restaurant, with nothing usual about any of the food. Wine list is extensive. Wine steward was very knowledgeable. Food was terrific and service outstanding. Prices are not for the faint of heart, however. Be prepared to pay a lot, but get a lot for the money in skillfully prepared and well-presented everything -- from beginning to dessert and after dinner drinks and wines."

Ardeo+Bardeo, located in the historic district of Cleveland Park -- four miles from the White House -- 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 Nate Garyantes has crafted a menu which features cured meats, soups and salads, savory snacks, seasonal vegetables dishes and brick oven baked flatbreads. Ardeo+Bardeo has become a virtual “Who’s Who” of Washington. Those who frequent include Madeleine Albright, Jim Lehrer, Alan Greenspan and the former first family, the Clintons.

Firefly, the quintessential urban neighborhood restaurant, offers contemporary American comfort food to the city's many 'regulars' who dine out several times a week. Enjoy favorites like our matzoh ball soup, mini pot roast and a variety of 'Urban Picnics' to share...or not. We also have many seafood and some vegetarian options. The menu is designed to utilize products from our local farms and farmers. Hand-picked to compliment the cuisine, our award-winning wine list shows an affinity for small winemakers and producers and our seasonal specialty cocktail menu offers a bevy of unique libations.

Established in 1994, Spices Restaurant has won critical and popular acclaim throughout its history for its specialties in traditional home-style and contemporary Asian dishes. Its stylish look with a long blond sushi bar with lilting music and warm service is perfect for entertaining friends and business associates. Guests are invited to enjoy a full Asian-inspired menu of dishes, exquisitely fresh range of new and traditional forms of sushi and sashimi, extensive wine list and specialty cocktails.

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