Poste will delight your senses with mouthwatering dishes and an award-winning wine list, in an atmosphere like nowhere else. Chef Dennis Marron serves up modern American Brasserie cuisine emphasizing fresh, local, and organic ingredients...even as local as our backyard! Whether you are enjoying a hand crafted cocktail on our outdoor patio, joining the happy hour crowd in our lively bar area, or cozying up in one of our booths on a winter evening, Poste is sure to have something to fit any occasion.

"First visit for 3 out of the 4 of our girls night out. Special salmon and black bass and mussels. All dishes fabulous. But, when we ordered more of the wine we had at the bar, we were told it was available but not chilled. Never heard that before! So, we asked our water to please put it on ice at our table. After we ate, we went back to the restaurant and ordered the same wine. Still no bottles were chilled! The bartender tried to upsell us to a white wine double the price! We balked and decided to go to another bar. But GM (sorry! Can't remember his name, but he started a year ago around cherry blossom time) stopped us at the door and soothed things over, but, visit marred."

Established in 1856, Old Ebbitt Grill is the oldest dining saloon in Washington, DC. Across from the White House, Old Ebbitt serves American Cuisine, and offers the largest selection of oysters in DC. Open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night dining, and Saturday and Sunday Brunch. Casual dining with service to locals and visitors alike.

"When hubby said, "Let's go to Old Ebbitt," I groaned. That old restaurant? Well, he was right! It's an old standby but never disappoints. We had more oysters in one sitting than we've had in our entire life. And, Derrick, our waiter patiently explained all the different kinds. The warm seafood salad was truly delightful, as was the soup. Also, please note happy hour 3-6pm and 11p-? oysters are half price. What a deal! Our reservation was for 6, so we went to the show and returned at 11 for more!"

DC Coast is the flagship restaurant of David Wizenberg, Gus DiMillo, and Chef Jeff Tunks, proprietors of Passion Food Hospitality. Located in DC's first Art Deco building, DC Coast strives to redefine classic cuisine and spirits. Chef Miles Vaden puts his own creative twist on the tri-coastal cuisine that has made DC Coast a popular dining spot for the last 15 years while bartender Lauren Lowe mixes up classic Prohibition Era cocktails with her own modern flavor. In addition to the regular menu, DC Coast offers a new tasting menu each month, featuring the cuisine and wine of a different coast from around the world.

"It was our first time for DC Coast....we had planned a special, rare overnight out, away from the kids. I happened to mention our "date night" to "Stephanie" who called earlier in the day to confirm the reservation. We were treated like royalty! We loved our private booth....our special surprises to start and end our evening....even the manager came by to greet us. Very attentive. Hubby got the chef's table monthly selection -- every morsel delectable. I got crab legs and crab salad. Very unique menu -- we will return. OH! I can't forget Derrick, our superb waiter. He was always there when we needed him (without interrupting or being there too much) He also keep us informed about the playoff game. LOL. They do it all 100%."
