701 is a modern American restaurant with exquisite food framed by an elegant decor. Join us in our bar & lounge for our signature cocktails and small plates or dine with us in our sumptuous dining room. During the spring & summer, our patio is tucked onto the Navy Memorial plaza, with splashing fountains providing a very Parisian feel. <br /><br />We offer pre-theater menus if you are going to a show, light fare in the lounge, and lunch at the bar specials for those tight on time. Our lunch menu is a favorite among business clientele; dinner is perfect for a special occasion or simply a special night out.

"As always, a very pleasant experience ---- good food (oysters, skate and beet salad were fabulous). Service wasn't bad, but very slow after bringing meals. We were not in a hurry and I think they may have realized that, but it took forever for the checks. In most cases this would have been a problem. Waitress did provide good info. about a new item and was very pleasant."

Jaleo brings alive the spirit and flavors of Spain with a menu reflecting the rich regional diversity of classical and contemporary Spanish cuisine, under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés. Jaleo offers an impressive assortment of tapas, the traditional small dishes of Spain, as well as savory paellas, superb sangrias and a fine selection of Spanish wines and Sherries in a festive, casual atmosphere.

"With a guest for NM who didn't like some of our regular dishes, we ordered some new things and have added to our favorites. I have been going to Jaleo's for 20 years and am never disappointed. Jose's first restaurant is still the best to me, but I love some of the new places too."

Pesce has been a favorite among Washington diners for fresh seafood and creative bistro entrees for over twenty years. By discovering the freshest seasonal ingredients in local markets and the regional countryside, and using innovative and classic cooking techniques, we place sincere thoughts into our recipes hoping to evoke a sense of pure bliss. By writing our menu on chalk boards, we are able to choose the highest quality ingredients from our local fish mongers and produce purveyors each day. <br><br>Have a glass of wine and a bite to eat at the bar and it may remind you of a Parisian bistro. You will hear the subtle stir of the city, taste the fresh ingredients, and feel the enthusiasm of our Pesce staff. A relaxed bistro atmosphere for all occasions, Pesce can host anything from a business lunch to an intimate dinner with friends and/or semi private events. The best seafood destination in Dupont!

"It has been a long time since I have been to Pesce, but I plan to go back soon. Our fish was outstanding as was the service. Great selection of fresh fish."

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.

"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."

"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."
