STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Washington D.C. is located in Dupont Circle and is in close proximity to D.C. attractions as well as being in the heart of the best night life in the Nation's Capital. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options and market fresh fish entrees. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jumbo Lump Crab Salad.

"Certsinly ranks among the elite steakhouses in the country. The only "drawback" is that it's so popular that the noise level is like being in a nightclub. Made any conversation a challenge. Apart from that its amazing."

Street food is the great equalizer--no glamour required. Yakitori, when well-executed, is about the simple flavors of authentic street food. A hot grill provides intense flavors from seasonal proteins and vegetables, grilled to order over a chattering, hissing fire.<br /><br />Beer, wine and sake selections compliment the fresh-grilled flavors. Craft cocktails, wines and spirits are chosen for customized meal pairings. Experiment and discover!

"The service was impeccable. The food was not your ordinary fare but was unique new experience. They were willing to go the extra effort to accommodate and food preferences (vegetarian). The only real drawback was how salty most options were because of the soy-based style. Worth a trip to try this place out but drink lots of water."

Le Colonial transports guests to another time and place, vividly recapturing the beauty, romance and spirit of 1920's French-Colonial Southeast Asia. Le Colonial invigorates the senses with exquisite décor and savory authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Le Colonial offers two unique dining options: The first floor dining room is adorned with louvered shutters, woven rattan chairs, potted palms, slow-moving ceiling fans and nostalgic black and white photos of turn-of-the century life in Saigon. The upstairs lounge includes a spacious, fully stocked mahogany bar, plush couches for enjoying light fare, dining tables and a veranda, for keeping warm in winter and cool in summer. Complete with unique, delicately prepared Vietnamese cuisine, Le Colonial is the perfect setting for an after-work social or a romantic evening for two.

This distinctly urban restaurant and wine bar provides an elegant yet casual feel, ideal for lunch, dinner, or after work cocktails. Townhouse's unique menu offers a large selection of small plates, sandwiches, salads and entrees to suit any taste.

Since opening in 2005, Carnivale has established itself as one of the premier dining experiences in Chicago’s West Loop. Exotic, energetic, and global, the festive atmosphere of Carnivale is a singular experience. We invite you to dine on unique Latin-inspired dishes created by Chef Rodolfo Cuadros while sipping drinks that run the gamut from muddled cocktails to aged tequila to complex wine — and a variety of other libations!<br /><br />In addition to delicious food and unique drinks, Carnivale also features seven private party rooms to accommodate wedding receptions, business meetings, and a variety of other occasions. Each room offers a unique environment, but they all reflect the energy and passion of Carnivale.<br /><br />Serving lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, Carnivale is the destination for Chicagoans who wish to enjoy global cuisine with Latin-American flair in an environment that reflects the passion of the chef!<br /><br />
