"The food and service were both very good. The three of us had 2 specials and one of the traditional dishes as well as shared calamari and salad and we enjoyed everything."

Hill Country is proud to have opened in DC! Named "Best Barbecue in NY" by both New York Magazine and Time Out New York, "Top 10 Barbecue in the U.S." by the Wall Street Journal and "Best New Restaurants of the Year" by New York Magazine, Hill Country takes its "cue" from legendary Texas barbecue joint Kreuz Market and its distinctive dry-rub style. Hill Country's brisket, sausage, ribs and other meats are smoked low and slow over Texas post oak. The barbecue is served in butcher paper, counter-style by the pound, with traditional trimmings.

"Food is good. I especially like the chicken and the beef. A cost can add up quickly. Most of the sides are good (corn collards and mac and cheese are my favorites). I live in the neighborhood and would go more often, but the noise level and serve yourself set up are not my thing for a good restaurant."

LINCOLN is an expression of artistic collaborations in gastronomy, mixology and design. <br />Savor our seasonal American small plate menu crafted from fresh ingredients supplied by local & regional farms. LINCOLN pays tribute to one of our greatest US Presidents, with nods to many of his favorite foods including oysters, gingerbread and chicken pot pie. <br />If you’re thirsty for cocktails that are truly one-of-a-kind, our barkeeps, have created one of the city’s freshest bar programs highlighted by mason jars featuring infused bourbons and DC's first moonshine-list served in antique-style copper cups. In warm weather months enjoy our patio offering panoramic views of DC’s urban landscape. <br />Original paintings and a distinctive interior design by homegrown pop artist, Maggie O’Neill make LINCOLN a feast for the senses at Lunch, happy hour, dinner, brunch or after dark. <br />

A classic American gathering place, the District Chophouse & Brewery is conveniently located 1/2 block South of The Verizon Center. We pride ourselves in serving the city's finest handcrafted beers and succulent steaks, mouthwatering chops, tasty seafood, and over-sized salads. Once you've eaten here, you'll agree the 'DC' stands for District Chophouse.

Ardeo+Bardeo, located in the historic district of Cleveland Park -- four miles from the White House -- is a neighborhood favorite serving modern American cuisine. The restaurant underwent a major renovation in November 2010 to enhance the modern bistro and wine bar, uniting the two restaurants with a 24-seat island bar. Executive Chef Nate Garyantes has crafted a menu which features cured meats, soups and salads, savory snacks, seasonal vegetables dishes and brick oven baked flatbreads. Ardeo+Bardeo has become a virtual “Who’s Who” of Washington. Those who frequent include Madeleine Albright, Jim Lehrer, Alan Greenspan and the former first family, the Clintons.

"The brunch was fantastic. We all had different items, (BLT, pork belly and grits, and the variation of eggs benedict) and all were really good. I have only been to Ardeo + Bardeo for dinner which was terrific. I live near most of Ashok Bajaj's restaurants and love them all, but it is worth making the trip up Conn. Ave. for A + B. The attention to the food, service, decor and other small details is always exceptional."

"I needed to meet with clients during a convention at the hotel and this was the only logical place to do it on a rainy day. I had red bad reviews so expectations were low. I had the grilled tuna salad. The tuna was perfectly cooked (almost rare) and salad was exceptionally good. Others had club and said it was good. Service was good considering that they appeared to be understaffed having a large convention in the hotel."

We source the finest, sustainable & local ingredients to create handcrafted food & beverages.<br /><br />Our setting is unmatched and the best casual, neighborhood dining in the West End. The bar is ornately decorated with massive mirrors, large columns and a multitude of glowing candles. These, along with the open kitchen where flames leap from the grill, create a warmth and intimacy in a casual atmosphere.

"I love Grillfish, but usually only go their when I have friends from out of town staying in that area. Each time is a treat and this time I ram going to grab my Penn Quarter neighbors and head that way.
The monk fish and mahi-mahi with different preparations were both great as was the calamari appetizer followed by the mango creme brulee. Bobby, our waiter was very thorough in going over the menu and making suggestions. We followed most and were delighted. He was great --- just the right combination of friendliness and not interfering with our conversation.
Highly recommend Grillfish. I wish you would open in Penn Quarter ---- I would be a regular."
