Jacky's offers classic and contemporary Asian cuisines, including Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Singaporean and more. Revamping traditional Szechuan, Hunan and Hong Kong style cuisines from a fresh perspective, along with the ingenious marriage of Chinese traditional and modern culinary cooking techniques, and presentation styles from the West make for a unique and eclectic dining experience.

Wine Market Bistro is a unique café, wine bar and wine shop all under one roof. We proudly offer over 30 wines by the glass and a 500 bottle selection in the wine shop. Most restaurants charge 300% or more for wine--at Wine Market guests can enjoy amazing wines for a small corkage fee ($10) over the retail price! This is a great savings for any wine lover. We feature a beautiful courtyard patio in the warmer months and a sophisticated Soho Loft like dining area inside all year. Reviews- Baltimore Magazine "Best Restaurants" 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009; 2011 Baltimore Sun rated us as one of the top 10 kitchens in all of Baltimore; Style Magazine listed us as one of their- "100 Favorite Places, People and Things." See website for more details.

"We went for brunch. The beignets with chocolate sauce are divine. Such a nice welcome. I had the custard French toast, which was light but sweet. Berries were very fresh. She had a chickpea/quinoa burger. A large portion. Service was fast and friendly. Sitting outdoors was great."

"Got a pizza, made downstairs at their fired oven. She got strawberry pancakes. I got my pizza fast. Was more than 1/2 done when the manager came by to tell us that they lost the order and it was "coming right up". Brought us fruit salad and was very nice about it but she had little bc she hates melon. Waiter came with the bill ~7 mins later bc he thought we were in a rush. He came back 1 minute later and apologized bc he thought she had eaten! A notion they were coming right up does not make sense to anyone who has made pancakes before. When we did get them, they were very good. My pizza (house sausage, jalapeno, salsa verde and egg) was flavorful and had great deep heat. Been several times & this was a 1st, but communication sheesh."

"While I think the portions are a bit small on the small plate side, mains are full of flavor and good size. Servers always friendly. Brussel sprouts (decadent - walnut oil, radishes, smoked blue cheese); crawfish hush puppies (skip 'em); sweet potato corn bread is an ok side; pimento is creamy w/flavor; bread & butter beef tartare is good but small portion (shallots, pickles, garlic sherry vinaigrette, crackers); grilled salmon is a big slice cooked perfectly (baby kale salad, goat ricotta, shaved shallot, charred lemon vinaigrette); can never go wrong with their charcuterie-from raw milk cheddar to bacon jam to head cheese to pork terrine to chicken liver mousse. Great selection of spirits and a very cool modern vibe. HH has good deals."

"Went w/3 mezze. Not a fan of mezze type places bc of speed, we were done/out the door in 40 mins. Duck hearts w/sweet corn - nice and inventive dish, duck was tender which is surprising for the organ. Kibbe naya had walnuts / olives / raw lamb - fresh and clean, but not the best thing. Surprisingly the grilled haloumi with a walnut/date paste and pickled onion was best. The salt of the cheese w/sweet and sour crunch of the onion was great. Been to the region a lot and am very aware of the flavors. I'd recommend this place as special occasion for the tasting menus. If we lived nearby we'd hit here every 2-3 months;wouldn't choose it as as special occasion place. Want similar food monthly? Lebanese"

Morimoto is a cutting-edge restaurant serving contemporary Japanese cuisine. Chef Masaharu Morimoto of Iron Chef fame prepares traditional dishes with a modern flair. Reservations will be accommodated at the sushi bar or a table; both options are fabulous! Special requests are encouraged but not guaranteed; please call the restaurant to discuss your special requests well before your reservation date.

"Server (Andrew) was nice, attentive and knowledgeable. I like when a server is honest with his opinion. Everything we had was amazing, and some things were just dynamite. Had wagyu carpaccio (waguy beef thinly sliced with yuzu, hot oil and mitsuba leaf) - beef was like butter; spicy king crab in the half shell - best version I've had, such flavorful crab; Cha soba as an ending item was a great clean finish (chilled green tea noodles with chopped scallion, fresh wasabim, sesame seeds, and dashi-shoyu); scallop ceviche was so tender and clean; seasonal Japanese scallops and eel were the best samples of the meat we'd ever had. Amazing ambiance, very cool décor, as it appears you are eating underneath an ocean wave. Just amazing."

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.

"Amazing food. Great ambiance. Lots of classics but with modern and local twists. Examples are: le plat du jour SUN - coq au riesling, which was a nice twist on a Winter classic. Also, the fluke ceviche was a more citrus motivated version French versions I've had. The details make this place like a portal to a bistro in France. I also tried the mushroom tart (crunchy and savory, mushrooms and pecorino paired well), the classic onion soup with gruyère that was hearty, the fall off the bone duck confit, addictive escargot. Cant' wait to go again."
