Bobby Van’s Grill marks the return of the powerful New York City chop shop to the downtown D.C. area but with a new twist. This eclectic New American Steakhouse now boasts a slightly more casual family friendly atmosphere as well as catering to the Washington politician. This 536-seat D.C. destination is fully loaded! There’s four private, intimate and upscale dining rooms with their own bar and bar services. Two 40-foot long bars can be found with friendly bartenders serving strong drinks and even stronger conversations. The main dining room boasts views of both New York Avenue and the plush marble atrium of the adjoining building amidst its beautiful water fountain. This is an ideal place to meet for power lunches, family gatherings and late night dinners in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

"Went to La Tomate for brunch with a Living Social coupon. First, the deal is misleading. The only value you get is the two free mimosa's per person. The food was mediocre, not great, but not bad either. The service, however was another story. Our server seemed unhappy to be there, uncomfortable around people and bothered to do his job. I wouldn't go back again, even for a better deal."

Béarnaise transports the flavors of Paris to Capitol Hill. Located at 3rd and Pennsylvania Ave. Southeast, Béarnaise serves bistro fare in a humble, but chic, atmosphere describes as "A French Revelation" by The Washington Post. <br /><br />Inspired by their childhood memories in Montreal and years of training and living around France Chef Spike Mendelsohn and his sister, Micheline Mendelsohn Luhn, opened the bistro to rave reviews. <br /><br />In the lively dining room, guests dine on classic French dishes with a twist in comfty leather booths surrounded by antique mirrors and vibrant original artwork from Parisian galleries. Pair your meal with a bottle of wine and indulge in decadent desserts to make any meal feel like an escape to France.

"I had the pleasure of going to Bernaise for Brunch. The place is quaint, the food good and the service above par for Capitol Hill. The homemade croissants were just OK, but the omlettes were delicious and the small salad that accompanied them well dressed and fresh. Our server was efficient, pleasant and engaging. One of the better Brunch options I've found."
