Quote as “unpretentious but stylish”, Le Chat Noir, casual bistro-style with Parisian left-bank feel features classic, traditional French cuisine and a large selection of savory and sweet crepes. The Wine Lounge atop Le Chat Noir restaurant pays homage to vintage -- wine-making and a retrospect to Comics Black & White silent films. With an impressive wine list and a wide-range of cocktails for you to choose from, it is a place to share an intimate moment. Cozy home-like ambiance, we look forward to nourishing you and tantalizing your taste buds in our art nouveau inspired Restaurant and Lounge.

Offering an authentic Italian experience to patrons on every visit, from the homemade pasta and breads to the wood burning pizza oven, and even the décor, you will feel as if you have just traveled to Italy . The menu changes daily, offering diners a fresh selection of pastas, meat and fish. Arucola also offers a selection of wood burning oven pizzas, variety of salads including our namesake Arucola, and an array of daily appetizers which include a selection from the marinated antipasto trolley, to daily creations.

New Heights consistently features innovative New American cuisine. Locals, from Presidents and well-known dignitaries to international travelers, return time after time. ZAGAT dished out top honors for the food, service, and stylish decor. The wine list receives the highest praise awarded by Wine Spectator and Restaurant Hospitality. The award winning architectural interior, original art adorning the walls, airy windows overlooking Washington DC’s scenic Rock Creek Park and dramatic floral arrangements create a perfect stylish atmosphere to enjoy the award winning creative cuisine of New Heights. Intelligent and knowledgeable wait staff add to create a perfect dining experience.

"My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at New Heights recently. It was outstanding. The staff went out of their way to ensure that our two sons, who are vegans, has delicious and beautifully presented dinners. My husband and I also had excellent meals. For a final sweet touch, the chef had written "Happy Anniversary" on our shared dessert plate. It was truly a memorable evening."
