Indique is coined by combining India and the unique. The two-story courtyard is bordered by carved white marble railings. Bold colors and rich fabric lend a refined yet casual ambience to the inviting space. Stark white stylish tableware works as the canvas for the artful creations of the kitchen. Appearances and flavors are given equal attention and both excel. Appetizers, named First Tastes draw on traditional Indian favorites and contemporary innovations like tapas or meze and served on small plates. Tandoor specialties shine here with rare coastal seafood and regional dishes from the south of India. Attentive service complements the sophisticated kitchen. **For parties larger than 4 people, please book through the restaurant website; www.indique.com **

"Great atmosphere, great food and selection, friendly and smart staff. As a group of 4 e had a great time. Some of the dishes are a little on the spicy side - which we love. But our otherwise helpful waiter got caught up in a conversation at the bar and didn't check on our food when it arrived (nor did anyone else) see that all our water glasses empty!!? Fifteen minutes later the waiter did come back - but we were not happy. This is unfortunate and probably a rare instance since this restaurant has had consistently positive reviews."

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.

Cafe Soleil and Lounge, located just off the Farragut West Metro Stop, has set the standard for dining in Washington for over a decade with our innovative cuisine and unmatched service. We are renown for our quaint, French inspired dining room that is ideal for a business lunch or a quiet escape from the busy hustle of Washington's business district. <br> <br>We recently added a happy hour that runs seven days a week from 5-8 pm. This menu boasts fine wines at only $5 a glass, and small bites that "are fit for foodies" at an affordable price. <br> <br>Book your office holiday parties, private happy hours, or meeting space with us. We offer the most competitive meeting space rates in Washington, DC. <br> <br>We have also added a daily specials menu. Do not miss Tuesday's "Menage a Trois" Special, Wednesday's half priced wine night, and Saturday and Sunday Suppers featuring three courses for $20.99. <br> <br>Always call ahead or book a reservation online. Cheers, Soleil

<br />The culinary arts are alive at the Morrison House, and The Grille's 'More than Bistro' concept is the centerpiece. Great tasting food, flawless service, and an atmosphere that is elegant but never pretentious combine for a memorable evening. You will feel equally comfortable in a suit or jeans.
