The closest restaurant to the Capitol building,United States Senate and Union Station, The Monocle is not only known as a Washington institution, but also for its fine American cuisine. You can always count on being served great crab-cakes, grilled fresh fish, steaks and chops, while enjoying the powerful political scenery. The private room upstairs is a Washington classic for private parties and political fundraisers. More than 6 please call 202-546-4488 since NOT accepted by open table reservations.

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.

"Love the Monocle. I know there will be good food and good service. The location can't be beat if you are doing business in the Senate."

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.

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."

"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!
