Stephen Starr brings his signature brand of hospitality and design to the nation’s capital with the opening of Le Diplomate, located at 14th & Q. Serving lunch, brunch and dinner, the stylish 260 seat restaurant transports diners to the beloved cafés of Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. The extensive menu features a variety of classic dishes including Onion Soup Gratinee, Steak Frites, and Poulet Roti as well as contemporary bistro fare, with dishes such as Shaved Veal Tongue with Mache and Bavette de Boeuf à l’Echalote. A thoughtfully curated wine list and cocktail program perfectly complements the cuisine and creates an environment suitable for romantic dinners or lively group gatherings. In warmer weather, enjoy dining "en plein air" in the stunning outdoor café where you can take in the bustling energy of DC while sipping on the perfect kir royale.

"Went to celebrate the closing of our new place (just next door--luck us!) and we had a very nice meal. My girlfriend's lobster risotto was amazing (according to her--I don't eat lobster) and she said she has never had a better risotto (and the woman knows her risotto). My steak frites was fine--nothing spectacular, but good. ambiance was very nice--absolutely PACKED on a Tuesday evening, and very noisy. Definitely a "scene" and too loud if you wanted a quiet conversation, but nice if you wanted to embrace the buzz."
