701 is a modern American restaurant with exquisite food framed by an elegant decor. Join us in our bar & lounge for our signature cocktails and small plates or dine with us in our sumptuous dining room. During the spring & summer, our patio is tucked onto the Navy Memorial plaza, with splashing fountains providing a very Parisian feel. <br /><br />We offer pre-theater menus if you are going to a show, light fare in the lounge, and lunch at the bar specials for those tight on time. Our lunch menu is a favorite among business clientele; dinner is perfect for a special occasion or simply a special night out.

"Our recent evening at 701 was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I've had in years. I'll admit that I haven't gone to this restaurant often in the past because the attitude of the staff was not welcoming. The food has always been good.
However, my most recent experience demonstrated a wonderful new attitude on the staff's part. Everyone was pleasant and positive. They all worked with us to be sure that we had the best possible experience. The food was even better than it has been in the past. I had the special squash blossom appetizer, which I strongly recommend if it's available. I followed with the haddock and my companion had the short ribs. The dishes were well conceived, well presented, and delicious.

Café Berlin has been serving authentic German and traditional cuisine on Capitol Hill since 1985. It occupies the ground floor of three townhouses whose front yards serve as patio for outdoor dining. The interior features a small bar and two cozy dining rooms. The restaurant is located within a short walking distance of Union Station and the U.S. Capitol. It draws politicians, congressional staffer, and tourists as well a loyal following of neighborhood residents. The traditional dishes are authentically prepared with lighter touch by chefs with extensive experience in German cuisine. In addition to the regular menu, the restaurant offer seasonally changing menus that feature fresh asparagus in the spring, salads and light fares in the summer, Bavarian dishes during Oktoberfest in the fall, and wild game in the winter. Desserts which are freshly made in-house include apple strudel, black forest cake, and luscious cream tortes. The bar offers a selection of imported German beers.

"The night we ate at Cafe Berlin the weather was wonderful, and their outdoor patio was packed. Even with a huge crowd, the food and service was up to Cafe Berlin's very high standards. Cafe Berlin is always a pleasure and a treat."
