Where the Left and the Right agree to meat. <br /><br />Locals know the “real” business of Washington often gets done over the dinner table. And on any given day, our steakhouse is a prime place to spot the wheels of democracy in action. From quiet formal dining rooms to a bustling Wollensky’s Grill to an outside patio perfect for enjoying spring cherry blossoms, you’ll find a variety of venues to suit any occasion. Private rooms available for up to 450. <br /><br />

VOLT offers guests a menu of modern American cuisine. “The focus of our cuisine is based on classic flavor combinations, creating sophisticated dishes that emphasize purity and seasonal flavors that are based on fundamental and innovative cooking techniques.” said Voltaggio. VOLT’s relationship with local artisan farmers ensures availability of products to fulfill the philosophy behind the menu, in a refined, historic venue where classic meets modern. By design, the restaurant follows along the original footprint of the mansions first floor parlors. Both the 38 seat main dining room and the bar/lounge open off the foyer. The original mosaic tile in the foyer was the inspiration behind the warm monochromatic color pallet that adorns the finishes in VOLT. Private dining can be hosted in the conservatory offering views of the expansive courtyard. The 700 square foot kitchen afforded space to include up to 20 guests.

Located steps away from the north gate of the White House, the all-new North Gate Grill at Capital Hilton pays homage to all-American cuisine with home-style dishes boasting farm-fresh ingredients and vibrant flavors. <br />

'The owners of The Diamondback Tavern have partnered with new investors in a separate venture called 'Portalli's' which will be located in historic Ellicott City where Jordan's Steakhouse used to be. Portalli's will be an Italian restaurant with a good mix of unique cutting edge preparations as well as classic Italian favorites. The name 'Portalli' comes from the maternal family of Evan Brown, one of the owners who will also serve as Director of Operations. Local chef Keith Holsey will be running the kitchen, and while the menu is still being developed, we plan on incorporating everything we love about Italian cuisine from all areas of Italy including several traditional Portalli family dishes. The goal is to create an Italian dining destination that will have enough originality and creativity for foodies, but will also be approachable for the casual diner or families looking for a fun night out.'- Lee Biars (owner of Ellicott City's Diamondback Tavern)

Known worldwide as the ultimate destination for chocolate, Max Brenner is the perfect place to eat… and indulge. Fill up on Really Crunchy Mac & Cheese, a pressed waffle sandwich or our ever-popular Brenner Burger. But save room, because the main course is dessert. Experience chocolate to the fullest and enjoy hot chocolate, Choctails, fondues, sugar waffles and more. Our most iconic dishes are served in specially-designed ceramic utensils, turning chocolate consumption into a chocolate ceremony. So double dip, lick your fingers and forget to share because at Max Brenner there aren’t rules – all you have to do is really love chocolate.

"Went here with my wife and family (22 & 14)...great menu for everyone, service was great, atmosphere was great. Truth is we went here for desert, thinking we can get thru the dinner to get to desert. Presently surprised at the quality of the food...good options, well prepared and the portions were the perfect size. As for desert...it did not disappoint!!! Fondue, and Chocolate Lava cake, with hot chocolates in hug mugs...."

Located in the heart of the Back Bay (across the street from Trinity Church). Skipjack's has devoted itself to importing the freshest seafood from around the world and offering it at the best prices in town. Skipjack's is a local favorite. Superb seafood, prime steak and a fresh creative sushi menu. Delicious cocktails and libations with an award winning wine list.

Expect nothing less than an extraordinary meal and first-class service from one of the most outstanding prime steak houses in the world: Ruth's Chris Steak House. Among the most distinctive dining destinations in the area. At Ruth's Chris Steak House your service will always be first class-attentive but never fussy.

"Seemed to be a 'step child' version of the other Ruth's Chris I often visit...still a fan of the chain---but not this particular location. I am a frequent visitor to Ruth's Chris across the country and this was by far well below what I have come to expect. The service was slow and un-attentive. Staff seemed frazzled and confused. One entree was fine, the ribeye ordered was well below standard...it was a very poor cut and not up to the usual standard. Creamed spinach side was warm to cool, not hot when served...brussel sprouts were extremely salty and mushy."

Enjoy a taste of a contemporary interpretation of the Mediterranean by Caprese. Step inside our calm and warm colored dining room to experience a menu that uses traditional ingredients and cuisine from the Mediterranean and delivers them to you in a way that you cannot find anywhere else in Old Town Alexandria.<br /><br />You can still find your favorite traditional dishes like the Caprese salad, but reinterpreted with a creamy burrata mozzarella cheese. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try entrees that take ingredients from throughout the Mediterranean and deliver a flavor you will want to try over and over again.
