The Evolution of Tradition is presented with Executive Chef Javier Romero introducing a new approach to some classic tapas. From old school tapas battling it out to healthy & organic salads, there's something for everyone. Celebrating our 25th Anniversary this 2014 and a young team bringing innovative techniques, we continue to show the best our culture has to offer.

"The tapas were excellent and the paella very good. One of the two paellas had too much salt, but other than that, both were tasty."

"All you can eat of good cuts of well-prepared meat and a generous salad bar make this an excellent place for people who are not worried about their cholesterol. The restaurant is expensive, but you get a lot for your money. The wine list is also expensive, with only a few reasonably priced bottles. Go for a special occasion when you want to make a pig of yourself and don't mind the cost."

"As always, La Taberna del Alabardero is one of the best places for Spanish food in DC. It is more expensive than Jaleo, but the food is a step up. Taberna also provides bread and olive oil with the meal, something Jaleo has discontinued. Everything my wife and I had was excellent, with the Fabada Asturiana that started the meal being a highlight . The bread came in handy to sop up every last drop of the broth. The only down side was a white wine they had on special. It was not bad, but not nearly as good as the food. I should have bought a white I was more familiar with. But that was not enough to get in the way of our enjoying the meal at one of DC's best restaurants and we plan on going back soon."

Established in 1856, Old Ebbitt Grill is the oldest dining saloon in Washington, DC. Across from the White House, Old Ebbitt serves American Cuisine, and offers the largest selection of oysters in DC. Open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night dining, and Saturday and Sunday Brunch. Casual dining with service to locals and visitors alike.

"Old Ebbitt is always crowded so make sure you make a reservation. The food is OK, but not great It used to be better. This is a good place to take your family since it has adult food and burgers for the kids. The staff is a bit overwhelmed by the number of clients so be prepared for pleasant but spotty service. The clam chowder was good, but not hot. Our bottle of white wine was on the warmish side and it took about 10 minutes to get us the ice bucket we requested. The fried oysters had more breading than oyster and the calves liver was overcooked. It is a good place if you are in the neighborhood (we went to a play at the Warner), but not a place for fine dinning."
