Blue Duck Tavern, a contemporary neighborhood restaurant, invites its guests to gather and celebrate in good taste with a menu focusing on the freshest ingredients available from local purveyors and artisans. The menu notes every farm where the main ingredient for the dish was raised before its journey to the table. Dishes are genuine, time-honored and traditional -- slow roasting in wood embers, braising, preserving and smoking techniques bring the true flavors of America's great, simple and wholesome foods to the Blue Duck Tavern. <br /><br />The restaurant has an elegant residential feel through the open staff pantry and kitchen, wood-burning oven and the showpiece Molteni range.<br /><br />*Please note that for diners bringing in wine, a $35 corkage fee (per 750 ml bottle of wine), with a limit of two bottles, will be charged.

Zaika offers an appetizing array of India’s regional cuisine, including signature dishes from Bombay and Goa, as well as vegetarian specialties from the south. A delicious complement to the main dishes, the traditional Naan bread, baked in the tandoor oven, is given extra flavor with garlic and fresh butter, spices, dried fruits and more.

Since 1999, Chef Wiedmaier infuses his Belgian heritage into Marcel's elegant haute French flagship restaurant. Regularly topping the best-of-lists in the nation's capital, in 2011 and 2012, it was rated the top restaurant for food by Zagat as well as one of the top five restaurants for service. <br /><br />

The Fainting Goat is a genuine neighborhood tavern in a sophisticated atmosphere with funky chandeliers, cozy banquettes, and a laid back atmosphere. Our dishes are inspired by modern American cuisine with subtle notes of whimsy, made with only the freshest ingredients available locally whenever possible. The Fainting Goat serves as a meeting place for locals, whether it be for the happy hour specials, a laid back date, or late night drinks with friends.

"Remarkable and outstanding cuisine, that came as a total surprise, Chef and team are doing a great job.
Unfortunately it is hard to enjoy it with too much agitation and loud music around you, maybe it is the new trend or I am old school, but when you send out 3 stars dishes, one would expect a different ambience.
Nonetheless we had a good time. Thank you.
