Edi & The Wolf is the East Village spinoff from Michelin Starred Chefs Eduard Frauneder and Wolf Ban. Inspired by the traditional eastern Austrian wine tavern known as a Heuriger, the rustic establishment boasts a cozy dining room and an outdoor garden area ideal for dates, group dinners, brunches, and everything in between. The rustic decor is balanced with impeccably prepared dishes, resembling fine dining in this casual spot. In addition to an extensive Austrian wine collection, the restaurant also boasts classic comfort dishes like Schnitzel and Spaetzle as well as new spins on traditional Austrian fare.

"Spending a weekend in NYC, the choices for a foodie can be overwhelming. But whatever you do, spend a lazy Sunday brunch at Edi and the Wolf. The ambiance is warm and ecclectic. The coffee is pure Euro bliss. And the food, oh the yummy pancake bites and eggs with chives. Beyond amazing. And basically the highest quality brunch for under 20$ to be had in Manhattan - -or Austria :-)"

Marie Louise Bistro is located in the heart of Mount Vernon and specializes in a blend of French, Italian, and Mediterranean cuisine at reasonable prices. The Bistro atmosphere is casual yet upscale, and offers an expansive wine selection to guarantee an affordable and enjoyable meal. We offer delicious quality fare using only the finest and freshest ingredients available.<br /><br />We are open bright & early 7 days a week for coffee & pastries, and then lunch & dinner throughout the day. We serve breakfast Monday-Friday. We also serve brunch every Saturday & Sunday.<br /><br />Stop in for a meal or even just a cup of coffee!

"Rasika presents some of the most delicious food I have ever eaten. But the lighting at the Penn Quarter location is abysmal. Went for restaurant week, which was an amazing deal, but the experience was really affected by the strange spotlight over head and harsh overall feel of the space. I would not go back for lunch. Maybe I will stick to the West End location."

"Ici, attached to the Hotel Sofitel, is a chic, modern French eatery in an area devoid of such a spot. The menu had light, but nonetheless lovely options, including a fantastic sea bass that was 250 calories. This is great for business diners who want excellence but need to watch their calories. But if you want decadent, this place has that too. The bread the bread the bread. Wow.
Superior service. Will definitely be back."

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.

"The food is superb. The staff are better than anywhere perhaps in the world. There is no haughtiness from any of the lovely hostesses - they are funny and incredibly talented at running the hottest spot in town. Erik, the sommelier, is remarkably skilled at his craft, and also warm and kind and approachable, even for those who feel intimidated by wine. It is lively and loud, like a proper spot in Montmartre, so if you want quiet and minimalist, this is not your spot. But if you want to feel alive, come here and savour all that makes the world beautiful and exciting - spectacular food, expertly selected wine, craft cocktails, the best bread and dessert, and some first class people watching."
