Michel Richard's modern American brasserie,and winner of the 2008 James Beard award for best new restaurant is located on Penn. Ave NW between the White House and the Capitol. We serve Michel's tribute to great American cuisine, both modern and classic, with a French accent. A vibrant bar scene with boutique beer and wines, and modern and classic cocktails.

"We had dinner at the bar with Nikki their excellent bartender. Lobster burger and Steak Onglet were both very good, as were the accompanying french fries..among the best in DC. We like CENTRAL very much, but hope Michel will also once again have a DC restaurant that was like Citronelle."

A sophisticated & contemporary BYO, just off Rittenhouse Square, Matyson offers New American cuisine in a casual setting. Innovative weekly tasting menus (available Monday- Thursday) spotlight Chef Ben Puchowitz's creativity of fresh, local ingredients.

"Three of us had a wonderful evening at MATYSON. Our table was ready on time and we were well served by the staff. MATYSON is BYOB so we brought 2 bottles of expensive wine and shared some with our server. Everything we ate was really very good, especially the foie gras real liver, and the fish--I had monkfish which can be testy to cook, but mine was perfect. The chocolate dessert was like Michelin 3 stars! Highly recommend MATYSON. The restaurant is on the small side with high ceiling and tight tables--so staff movement is difficult and noise pretty intense at times--but still this place is worth your time and for return as well."

"WOW--this place os spectacular, adding another true gem to the several outstanding restaurants in Walkers Point. The chef is ambitious along with his young team that is very well orchestrated--even at this early stage of a new restaurant. It will be good to keep the menu on the small side for a while. I had mushrooms and the special ham biscuit -- truly outstanding--and the cocktail with Makers is also a gem. I think it will be hard to get into Morel for a while--so book early--and support all the other good restaurants in the area too!!!"

"Casa Luca may be the informal version of its big brother Fiola--but it certainly has a very high standard of kitchen success and service. The pastas are unique but sensible. Appetizers are inventive and deserts are full of imagination------and all of this comes at a very decent price point. They also have some very fine house cocktails. We are happy to go there any time!"

"EQUINOX and its talented Chef Todd Gray make for a very solid evening of dining. This is a place where it is always good to ask what is fresh in the kitchen, and the result will not be disappointing. They now have a modified Happy Hour with quite a fine variety of well priced small plates and very decent wines. I think Equinox is especially good for seafood and pasta--Chef has a magical touch with pasta!"

"Anything you ever heard about Le Bernardin remains true. We had an outstanding evening at the perfect table we had requested. The staff and kitchen made this memorable. Everything was great--I had the dover sole--truly magnificent."

"This was our 5th or 6th visit to Circa over the last year or so. The quality remains very high and the sensibly sized menu always a treat. Two guests were amazed at the pheasant--just great and so was the lamb--like the pheasant--done with variations on the plate---not just a lump of meat, but an innovation/invention. Circa is a very talented kitchen of sustained high quality, and so isn't the overall management of the restaurant and wine program--so we recommend highly to all."

"We had a very nice special evening for a little celebration. Everything was very nice, and we even had the Rest Week Menu with an added pasta portion. While all the food was excellent, the RW steak was out of sight ( with rosemary )--just outstanding and perfectly cooked. The management of this restaurant is top notch--and that makes it easier for the kitchen to deliver it promise. We like Casa Luca very much and always ready to return."

"We visit Casa Luca about every six weeks or so and thoroughly enjoy the bar when it is not too crowded, and always dinner at their many nice tables. The senior staff and servers are all professional and engaged with the customers, and the restaurant manager is on the spot with everything. We enjoyed pasta selections and a variety of smaller dishes so we could eat "tapas" style. Everything was great as always."

"Todd Gray and his loyal staff operate an excellent restaurant that keeps up with the times. The menu is interesting and features the products of local farmers. The design of the restaurant is interesting as well--a more formal space inside, also a covered atrium and a real outside plaza. The bar is medium size with chairs and tables. You can dine simply here or have a very grand chef's menu. We especially like his high and pasta."
