DBGB is Chef Daniel Boulud's casual restaurant specializing in house-made sausages, burgers and seasonal Lyonnais-inspired bistro cuisine. Located at CityCenter in the Penn Quarter, DBGB is a short walk to the Convention Center, Verizon Center, and The White House. We serve dinner seven nights a week, lunch Monday to Friday, and brunch on the weekends in a casual yet comfortable setting. Bar and lounge seating is always available and walk-ins are encouraged. Two spacious private rooms accommodating from 12-50 people are located on our second floor. We look forward to serving you!

"I've been here 3 times since it opened, although my first trip was just a trip to the bar. The 2 times I've had dinner, I haven't been disappointed."

Jean-Georges opened in 1997 to critical acclaim. The jewel of Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s empire, the restaurant offers the very best in fine dining. Consistently awarded four stars by the New York Times and three Michelin stars, Jean-Georges presents exquisitely crafted dishes blending French, American, and Asian influences. Chef Jean-Georges is a master at maintaining the essence of ingredients while using them inventively to produce the best flavor. Jean-Georges’ chic and intimate dining room was redesigned by Thomas Juul-Hansen, with striking lighting by L’Observatoire. Impeccable service, tableside preparations, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of Central Park and Columbus Circle all contribute to an unforgettable dining experience. Jean-Georges offers a three-course prix-fixe menu and two six-course tasting menus: a traditional tasting of the chef’s signature dishes, and a seasonal tasting featuring fresh market ingredients.

"This is the type of restaurant where you expect to be pampered, which is exactly what the waitstaff does. The service worked like a well-oiled machine. The food itself was delicious, especially the seafood dishes. I ordered the tuna strips (the tuna was buttery and light), the crab dumplings (also light and flavorful) and the pork belly (my least favorite, but quite good nonetheless). You can't get better quality for the price you pay here. Truly wonderful."

"Went here because it was close the Metro Stage theater. Although they don't have a pre-theatre menu, the waiter overheard us talking about and made sure we were done with plenty of time to get to the venue. The food is fine."

"We went for the Thanksgiving buffet since it offered fried turkey, which I love, so this might not be representative of the norm here. The food was kept merely warm, not hot. It was all decent, but not nearly as good as expected."

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.

"First of all, the service here from start to finish was excellent. I had a larger group than I'd originally reserved a table for, but the hostesses were attentive and quick to find a suitable table. The menu is very French bistro, but varied enough that even the vegetarian at the table found something interesting. I love the potatoes au gratin and get them every time. They are a MUST."

Fly bar and restaurant was envisioned as a vibrant space within which people can share food and drink while surrounded by local music and art. Fly serves moderately priced plates based on a global cuisine that are deigned for sharing among friends and brought to the table steadily throughout the meal.

"The rooftop bar proved very popular with my group; we loved it. The food itself was nothing special, but not bad, either. I'd say it's better than what you'll find at most bars, but probably not as nice as what you'd get at a good restaurant."
