Zengo, which translates to "give 'n take", merges flavors of Chef Richard Sandoval's heritage with his passion for Asian cuisine. This melding of flavors and cultures results in intriguing shareable dishes.

"The Sunday brunch was fabulous and worth every penny of the price - free-flowing brunch drinks arrived without asking, and it was such fun to try so many things - a friend and I shared a bite of each dish so we were able to sample more - the food is eclectic fusion and it's very tempting and easy to overdo it as so many offerings are delicious and you want more! We loved the combination of flavors to make something totally new. We will be going back again!"

"Three of us have done a Christmas lunch for over 20 years, most of them at Ruth's Chris. Always an enjoyable experience. Our server was friendly and attentive but not overbearing - we had mentioned we don't see each other often and wanted to sit back and linger. I had one of the specialty drinks - Agave Bees Knees - it was absolutely delicous! Our steaks and sides were generous and perfectly cooked. Totally relaxing and wonderful time and will look forward to not only next year's lunch, but addiional trips in between!"

BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

"It was lunch and meeting a good friend - it was cold and damp and soup was just the ticket! Totally enjoyed the broccoli cheddar soup - gooey, warm and satisfying. I had a hamburger with tomato jam - really delicious and my friend had quinoa grilled chicken salad. The waiter was very attentive but not intrusive and the manager stopped by at the end of the meal for a chat - lovely time-out for Christmas!"

"So reasonable a cost for such a fun brunch - bottomless drinks and a basic $25 3 course menu - with wonderful selections in each group! Totally enjoyed our brunch with friends, delicious chicken and waffles, and a friend said the mushroom panini was very very good! Will try again soon!"

What better place to be, than three blocks from the White House, walking distance from the Mall, across the street from the Warner Theatre, and right in the heart of Downtown? For over 11 years, Chef Geoff's Downtown has happily served Capitol Hill, theatergoers, business brokers, neighborhood friends and D.C. visitors alike with our New American Cuisine. Our expansive menu is designed to please. Enjoy 1/2 Price CG Burgers and $8.95 Pizza Pies during our phenomenal happy hour. Join us every Sunday for Brunch and every Monday for Half Price Wines. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to seeing you soon. Cheers! Chef Geoff

"We love Signature Theater and always take advantage of the dining scene there - we spotted Blue Sea a couple of months ago and decided to try it on our next visit. It's very pretty inside - the bar was full and the tables started to get a bit busier; it was a lovely Fall evening and the tables outside were full. Food was very good - I had the catfish and really enjoyed it, my husband enjoyed his stuffed flounder - the more casual things like lobster mac and cheese and po boys sound intriguing so will have to come back shortly for a lunch! Altogether a very nice evening meal and the service was very good, friendly and attentitve"

"Marvelous specials abound every time we enjoy our meal at Bonaroti's. It is a really nice special occasion or casual evening place but you are made to feel special. The food is always delicious and service is attentive but more obsequious which is nice and non-intrusive. Lots of wonderful fish are always on the specials and they are consistently very good and very well executed. I always look forward to dining there."
