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.

"Wonderful meal at Jaleo and for once, it wasn't totally slammed, so it was reasonably quiet. Jorge took such wonderful care of us, as always! From the moment we said hello and wished each other a Happy New Year, his impeccable service began. Each dish was perfect and once again we enjoy that even a dish we might have had before is presented in a slightly different way, or a new ingredient has been added. Loved the octopus with clementines (who knew that would work) and the creamy rice topped with perfectly cooked mushrooms will always be a favorite. Thanks, Jorge, for a great meal!"

"We can never say enough good things about Matyson. Although we don't make it to Philadelphia as often as we might like, we have never had anything less than an outstanding meal here. We couldn't stop ordering the fish on this trip - we tried each one on the menu over the three meals we enjoyed and none of them were less than superlative. Can't wait for our next trip to Philly!! And Tracy, thanks for the special treat!!!!!"

"While we didn't realize we had signed up for a fixed-price brunch, it was a lovely experience. We both enjoyed omelets made to order at the omelet station along with some side dishes. An a la carte menu would have been a plus since we also had dinner reservations on our agenda for that evening. The service provided by Craig was excellent!!"

For years, owners Nat Ongsangkoon & Dia Khanthongthip have dreamed of bringing Thai market foods to DC, and are excited about the canvas Soi 38 presents. As natives of Bangkok, Thailand, they grew up relishing trips to the night market for some of the best food in Thailand, and are excited to bring this collection of street foods to Washington, DC.<br /><br />Inspired by the underground eateries around Bangkok’s night markets, Soi 38 features creative Thai street foods, hearty Thai favorites and a bar program featuring draft and bottled cocktails to DC’s West End neighborhood.<br /><br />The name Soi 38 is based on the iconic street food district and night market of the same name in Bangkok. As evening falls in Thailand, the Soi 38 night market transforms into a high energy, open-air food market crowded with stalls and rickety furniture where vendors dish out authentic Thai food favorites until the early-morning hours.

"Our first visit after seeing Soi 38 mentioned in the "new restaurants for 2014 in the Post". Excellent lunch of Sriracha fried rice with chicken and a lovely crispy duck dish. Also enjoyed our appetizers. Definitely on the "return for another visit soon" list!"

"Jane G's was new to us since we evidently haven't walked that specific area on any of our Philly visits since they opened. It was very quiet, but on a Saturday afternoon just before Christmas, that wasn't a surprise. The food is lovely and beautifully prepared. We enjoyed the won ton soup and then shared Kung Pao Chicken, steamed edamame and spring rolls. A perfect holiday lunch!"

A modern vegetable restaurant by Chefs Richard Landau & Kate Jacoby, formerly of Horizons: Located in the historic Tiger Building on Locust Street, Vedge offers classical, elegant dining experiences as well as a sophisticated bar. The menu takes a fresh approach to cooking vegetables, presented in a series of mid-size plates. Think: Smoked Eggplant Braciole, Salt-Roasted Golden Beets, Wood-Grilled Maitake Mushrooms.

"All we had read about Vedge turned out to be true and even then didn't begin to capture the incredible food and presentation. Our server, Kate, knowledgeably walked us through the different parts of the menu and then answered any and all questions in perfect detail. As our dishes arrived, we were amazed that each one was not only unique, the flavors and textures were truly outstanding. It would be difficult to choose a "favorite" from what we ordered, but it is easy to say that everything was delicious and we will definitely be at Vedge on our next trip to the area."

"Since we don't live in Philly, a visit to Matyson is like coming home (and we are talking about visiting those relatives you really enjoy seeing). From the moment we walk in the door, we feel incredibly welcome. And then there is the food... Always amazing, and never disappointing. We had three meals during our visit and appeared to be on the pescetarian tour since it was all the seafood, all the time; we just couldn't resist ordering yet another of the fish options. And the service offered by Tracy was beyond perfect - thanks, Tracy for making our evening even more special!"

Stephen Starr's stylish addition to Rittenhouse Square pays tribute to French cafe culture, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, ideal for a quick bite or a leisurely meal. Parc recalls the chic brasseries of Paris, serving classic French fare in a charming space. Red leather banquettes topped with frosted glass provide a sense of intimacy. Details such as well-worn wooden chairs, vintage framed paintings and photos and antique brass fixtures transport guests across the Atlantic. French doors spill onto a sidewalk terrace covered by a dark red awning perfect for dining "en plein air." Reservations are not accepted for outdoor tables.

"We wouldn't miss having at least one meal at Parc when we visit Philly. Although a "sister" restaurant, Le Diplomate is now in DC, Parc is still our favorite in this family of restaurants. Love sitting by the window with a view of Rittenhouse Square park where everyone is walking at least one, if not two or three dogs enjoying the best frites in the universe!!"

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.

"Our recent meal at Ardeo-Bardeo was certainly not memorable. In a word, the place looks "tired" although we recall the major renovation not that many years ago. Initially we did not even see a server and when she did appear, the service was perfunctory, at best. Our entrees were fine although the pasta in the short ribs ravioli was undercooked. Overall, there just isn't much to comment on and while we do visit this restaurant, those visits will probably be even more infrequent. There are so many good choices in DC, and within this restaurant group; we will more likely go to Rasika than revisit Ardeo-Bardeo."

"We always love the dim sum brunch at The Source. And, we think Jorge is a fabulous server, so this time we asked him to make our selections and we got to sit back and enjoy the surprises as the different dishes arrived. Jorge did a spectacular job, and the food was outstanding as it always is... Particularly memorable on this visit were the mussels, the duck bao buns which are always amazing, but were even better than usual, and the creamy, smooth rice pudding for dessert. Jorge, thank you for a wonderful experience!"
