"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!"

"Always fun to be at Jaleo, and on such a gorgeous Friday in late July. The meal, from beginning to end, was outstanding as was the service provided by Jorge T. Not only is he knowledgeable about the menu, but he watches to see when you need his attention without hovering - the perfect combination. We are always in good hands with Jorge. The "liquid" olives are still a huge favorite and those were followed by a wonderful watermelon salad, perfectly cooked rice with mushrooms and more - lovely!"

"Our first visit to Rasika in a long time and we wonder why we didn't return sooner. The flavors and textures of the food at Rasika are just amazing. From the Palaak Chat to the Chicken Biriyani and Tandoori Salmon with a side of delicious kale fritters, each bite was memorable. Sadly, we were too full to consider dessert, but we did enjoy reading the options available had we been up for just one more bite. Being at Rasika reminds us that we need to get back to Bombay Club next!"

"A beautiful day for dim sum brunch at The Source. Both the food and the presentation - always amazing. A couple of new items on the menu that we enjoyed - the smoked trout spread on garlic toast was delicious. Service by Jorge was beyond excellent - we received incredible care - thank you Jorge!! No doubt we will return soon since this is one of our very favorite meals in DC."

"Crazy busy at Jaleo, but we did manage to convince them that we didn't want to sit in the row of tables where you are so close to your "neighbors" that it is difficult to have a conversation... Food terrific as always. Especially notable on this visit was the heirloom tomato salad with slivers of Kalamata olives and blue cheese. Seasonal, refreshing and something you would like to eat every day. The tomatoes were truly perfect!"

"We always enjoy both menu favorites from previous visits, and new things that have popped up since our last visit. So nice to see a watermelon salad reappear in honor of the much warmer weather. Also loved the mixed veggies, almost a ratatouille combo, topped with fried quail eggs. And of course the creamy rice topped with fabulous mushrooms is a "don't miss" for us. Jorge T provided his usual fabulous service - thanks, Jorge!"

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.

"Lovely Saturday brunch at Ardeo+Bardeo. We went with two of the salad options on this visit, the pea shoots with 63 egg and the farro/black eye pea salad; both delicious! A side of bacon and we were too full to consider dessert, but next time we will leave some room..."

"Visitors from Boston (one a vegetarian) loved everything we ordered at Jaleo. So many interesting choices that we never tire of going there and we always enjoying sharing Jaleo with friends. Highlights of the meal included the beautiful fennel, apple, manchego salad, those amazing liquid olives, veggies topped with fried quail eggs, grilled asparagus on romesco, the scallops and so many other lovely small plates. Jaleo pops up on our dining radar frequently."
