Stephen Starr brings his signature brand of hospitality and design to the nation’s capital with the opening of Le Diplomate, located at 14th & Q. Serving lunch, brunch and dinner, the stylish 260 seat restaurant transports diners to the beloved cafés of Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. The extensive menu features a variety of classic dishes including Onion Soup Gratinee, Steak Frites, and Poulet Roti as well as contemporary bistro fare, with dishes such as Shaved Veal Tongue with Mache and Bavette de Boeuf à l’Echalote. A thoughtfully curated wine list and cocktail program perfectly complements the cuisine and creates an environment suitable for romantic dinners or lively group gatherings. In warmer weather, enjoy dining "en plein air" in the stunning outdoor café where you can take in the bustling energy of DC while sipping on the perfect kir royale.

"The cheese plate was as fabulous as remembered and the green salad tasted outstanding! The creme brulee offered a smashing finish! The entrees didn't completely match my expectations. A bit too much garlic in the lamb. The trout was enjoyable. There is a strong line-up of staff to respond to guests' needs, so diners never feel neglected. Somehow, the odd, eclectic music didn't suit the ambiance of the restaurant and detracted from the experience. Please...Remember to check the restrooms for supplies throughout the evening...diners after 8:30 on a Sunday want to feel just as welcome as those arriving at 6 PM on Friday. It was a delightful evening. Enjoyed our visit."
