"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!"

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.

"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."

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.

"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."

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.

"It is always a challenge at Zaytinya to try new things on the menu when there are so many items we love and return to over and over. We did manage to skip the Brussels sprouts for once, but the Horta Salata will always be part of our meal. A lovely start to a long holiday weekend!"

"Finally, a beautiful weekend in DC and we were fortunate enough to have reservations for the wonderful Saturday dim sum brunch at The Source. This is one meal we never tire of, and for so many good reasons. Each plate is so beautifully presented, and the variety of tastes and textures is amazing. While we miss having Anya as our server, Jorge is also terrific and we look forward to dining with him again soon."

"Treated family to dinner during a visit to St. Louis. Outstanding meal and so very creative. While our family is able to visit more frequently, we newcomers enjoyed some great entrees, one of red snapper and the other a mushroom special. Service was extremely good and our wait person went out of his way to provide some requested extras from the sister restaurant next door. Lovely evening and one we hope to recreate on a subsequent trip."
