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.

"Jaleo was slammed on a blustery Wednesday night and even with a reservation, we waited for a bit. To sit in Jorge's section is worth the wait and our guest from out of town was "wowed" by the wonderful food and exceptional service. The garlic shrimp, sauteed spinach and salad of shredded brussels sprouts, apricots and sherry vinaigrette were the stars of the evening. Thanks for a great time, Jorge!"

The Source is the first fine dining restaurant in the nation’s capital headlined by Master Chef Wolfgang Puck. Designed by EDG, the three-level restaurant is the signature dining experience at the Newseum, an interactive museum of news. The Source offers two distinct dining experiences as well as a private room located on the lower level that seats up to 40 guests. The ground floor bar and lounge where guests enter offers approachable dining in a casual setting and features a traditional Japanese Izakaya menu offering sushi, sashimi, noodle dishes and authentic "Robata" grilled dishes. Upstairs, guests can enjoy a menu that features Puck’s modern take on Asian cuisine. The Source is the recipient of many awards and accolades including #3 ranking on Washingtonian Magazine's "Top 100 Restaurants" list, "2008 New Restaurant of the Year" Award and "2008 Restaurant of the Year" from DC Magazine plus has received three stars from Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema.

"Our visitors from PA loved everything they tasted during the Saturday dim sum brunch. It would be difficult to point to a favorite since they commented favorably on each dish. The clams and the duck buns may have been the stand-outs, but everything was perfect, as always. And the service, outstanding!"

"Although we no longer live in the area, a recent visit gave us an opportunity to have lunch at Season's. The ambiance is just perfect with views of beautiful trees and plants. The food is quite good, if not outstanding, and the service excellent."

Under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines served up in a sleek and modern setting. Shared small plates, creative cocktails and unique Mediterranean wines make this spot one of DC’s top dining destinations.

"Friends visiting and Zaytinya with easy access for everyone arriving on Metro is the perfect spot. So many wonderful options on the menu and they loved every bite. Still talking about those Brussels sprouts, big surprise!!"

"We realized it had been several months since our last meal at Zaytinya, so we picked a spectacular fall day to enjoy a leisurely lunch. Billie provided excellent service and our meal, as always, was fabulous. We are still crazy for the Brussels sprouts and the horta salata which we would happily eat daily. The mix of mushrooms with dates was lovely and a new menu item since we were last there. The squid, extra crispy, was divine! So glad we returned!"

"A lovely lunch at The Source after a morning at the National Gallery. So nice to have such a fabulous lunch option near one of our favorite museums. The entrees of drunken noodles with shrimp and the steamed salmon with bok choy were both delicious and beautifully complemented by the "riot of vegetables"."

"Always fun to take an out-of-town friend to Jaleo's. Generally our guests are willing to let us order and no one has ever been disappointed. With guidance from Jorge (who provides truly amazing service), we all enjoyed a fabulous meal filled with a mixture of tastes and textures. The liquid olives are always something our guests must experience; the sauteed spinach was amazing; the chicken in parsley sauce was perfectly prepared and everything that came to the table was delicious."

"A terrific meal and we especially enjoyed the tomato salad that is part of the current tomato celebration. Where else do you see the kind of attention to detail that not only provides you with perfectly ripe, peeled heirloom tomatoes, but even the grape and cherry tomatoes were peeled and cut in half. All of our dishes were excellent, but the salad was the star this time around!"

"Just when we think Jorge M cannot exceed himself in providing excellent service, he surprises us again! What a wonderful dim sum brunch and made even more special by Jorge's attention. He is in that unique class of servers who are always aware of exactly where each of his tables is in the progression of their meal and he provides just the right touch at the right moment. There is no hovering, but neither are you ever waiting for him to arrive to pour a glass of wine or check to see if there is anything needed. The food is always amazing at The Source, and the service is equally outstanding."

Directly across from the Verizon Center, Rosa Mexicano has been serving classic Mexican cuisine for over 20 years. Try the famous guacamole, prepared tableside, & sip a frozen pomegranate margarita while enjoying the festive, stylish and comfortable ambiance.

"A perfect summer day in DC and just right for enjoying lunch in the outdoor area of Rosa Mexicano. In addition to the terrific guac (which we especially love since they will make it for us without onions), we had an outstanding salad. Beautiful kale with veggies and perfectly roasted salmon. So glad we decided to share the salad since it was huge! All of that plus the musicians on the street - such fun!"
