Our menu offers an array of farm-fresh food and refreshing cocktails to please your tastebuds, and a vibrant atmosphere to make for an enjoyable dining experience at any time of day! Housed in a historic feed & grain warehouse from the late 1800s, Virtue's stunning rustic modern decor is sure to impress.

"I made a reservation, but waited while the hostess sat two other groups ahead of us (neither of which had reservations). The interior is very cool, but the furniture is impractical. When we were seated, the bench seating could not be pulled out enough to sit; I had to kneel and scoot across the bench and then tuck my knees under. Awkward! The waiter in our section was frazzled. He kept forgetting about us and did not know the menu. I ordered ice tea, which was so watery, it was undrinkable. After hearing the table next to us, and the table behind us complain about the food (raw chicken, burnt chicken), we paid for my drink and left before ordering food."

Rasika, which is derived from Sanskrit meaning "flavors,” is the award-winning modern Indian restaurant owned by Ashok Bajaj. Leading the kitchen is Group Executive Chef Vikram Sunderam, a 2012 nominee for Best Chef Mid-Atlantic from the James Beard Foundation. Rasika has consistently earned four stars in the coveted Dining Guide of The Washington Post, and is in the top tier of Washingtonian magazine’s annual “100 Best.” Esquire magazine named it among the country’s best new restaurants in 2008 and Food & Wine magazine also stated that Rasika is “One of the hottest restaurants in the world.” Rasika showcases authentic Indian fare prepared on the Tawa (griddle), Sigri (open barbeque), as well as Tandoori and regional dishes. The restaurant is also noted for its international wine list, innovative cocktails and intimate, plush dining room. For private dining, Rasika has an exclusive space that can seat up to 16 guests and a semi-private area for up to 28.
