Stephen Starr brings his signature brand of hospitality and design to the nation’s capital with the opening of Le Diplomate, located at 14th & Q. Serving lunch, brunch and dinner, the stylish 260 seat restaurant transports diners to the beloved cafés of Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. The extensive menu features a variety of classic dishes including Onion Soup Gratinee, Steak Frites, and Poulet Roti as well as contemporary bistro fare, with dishes such as Shaved Veal Tongue with Mache and Bavette de Boeuf à l’Echalote. A thoughtfully curated wine list and cocktail program perfectly complements the cuisine and creates an environment suitable for romantic dinners or lively group gatherings. In warmer weather, enjoy dining "en plein air" in the stunning outdoor café where you can take in the bustling energy of DC while sipping on the perfect kir royale.

"Brought my mother here for her 60th birthday. I love Le Diplomat and dine with you as frequently as I can. I have been talking about this place to my mom, and it exceeded her expectations. Thank you for a lovely afternoon. Our server was, as always, charming and warm."

Fiola, Fabio Trabocchi's modern Italian Trattoria, features Italian cuisine with an emphasis on fresh local ingredients from our farms and markets. The menu will change constantly focusing on seasonal ingredients.

"Perfect from start to finish. Perhaps the best restaurant in DC, but certainly.the best italian. Great ambiance. Amazing service. My friends and I went to celebrate our dear friend moving to Paris. This was the perfect dining experience before he leaves DC - Paris will have to live up to Fiola!"

This energetic Thomas Circle restaurant serves innovative American cuisine, with Italian influences from our Chef Luca De Marchis. Because we use locally grown ingredients, our menu changes frequently, keeping the choices fresh and seasonal. The ambience is inviting at any time of day; watch the "early birds" at Thomas Circle in the morning, sunbathers taking a dip in our pool after lunch, or a beautiful sunset at the end of the day. Sip a glass of champagne or a cocktail by candlelight on our Poolside Terrace and make a wish while watching the stars over Washington, D.C.

"went for the living social brunch deal -- 30$ for buffet and drinks, including bloody marys and mimosas. That brunch was not worth 10$. The food was ok, but nothing extraordinary, and the bloody marys were cheap vodka in watered down tomato juice. Undrinkable. And the service was so slow. Everything about this place was depressing."

Restaurant Marvin has been serving Belgian cuisine, American soul food-inspired dishes, and soulful sounds to the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC since 2007. Our cozy bistro on the first floor is the perfect spot for an intimate dinner while the upstairs lounge, private dining room, and rooftop bar epitomize the best of DC nightlife.

Firefly, the quintessential urban neighborhood restaurant, offers contemporary American comfort food to the city's many 'regulars' who dine out several times a week. Enjoy favorites like our matzoh ball soup, mini pot roast and a variety of 'Urban Picnics' to share...or not. We also have many seafood and some vegetarian options. The menu is designed to utilize products from our local farms and farmers. Hand-picked to compliment the cuisine, our award-winning wine list shows an affinity for small winemakers and producers and our seasonal specialty cocktail menu offers a bevy of unique libations.
