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.

"Went to LeDiplomate for the first time to celebrate my dad's 65th birthday. We were seated immediately upon arrival and many of those surrounding us also appeared to be celebrating special occasions. The menu/ambiance is almost identical to Balthazar's in NYC (same owners), but it's one of my favorite places so this certainly isn't a bad thing. The food was very good and came out quickly despite the entire place being packed. Even my French stepmom was impressed! Would definitely return in the future, especially to go to the bar which appeared to its own hot spot."
