Chef Kyoo Eom serves up modern American Brasserie cuisine emphasizing fresh, local, and organic ingredients...even as local as our backyard!

"We hadn't been to Poste in a long while and enjoyed re-making our acquaintance. We waited rather a long time for food to start arriving, and were only partly relieved by the amuse bouche. Luckily, we were not pressed for time (for once). Once delivery began, however, the service was paced well. Not being especially fond of either beets or kale, I was surprised at how nice the salad from those ingredients tasted. My dining partner ate every bite of his salad Lyonnaise and pronounced it delicious. The gnocchi were excellent - light and fluffy, not dense and heavy as they often are. The glazed eggplant was also excellent. Unfortunately, the wine - a Sylvaner - was ever so slightly maderized, noticeable only after a few sips. The deconstructed lemon meringue tart was tasty, but not quite what we were looking for when we ordered it. I am a regular dessert orderer and I would rather have known in advance how it was going to be presented."

Jardenea is a freshly new, “Farm to Fork Concept,” that practices sustainable environmentally friendly techniques. Our goal is to bring a better awareness of food, health, and well-being to your life while insuring to leave the land a better place for the next generation. We strive to give the complete dining experience with not only the cuisine but our signature cocktails and our seasonally changed wine list. The Cuisine that we create is globally influenced and locally produced whenever possible. Our chefs have a deep appreciation for farm fresh products but also realize these products could come at a great cost and leave a large carbon footprint. While keeping this in the forefront we only source products from the finest farms, fisheries, foragers and artisans that believe in the same vision. The menus are changed with the season and reflect the regional flavors to maximize freshness and minimize the carbon footprint.

"Jardenea was overall a pleasant experience and a good find for a decent choice before a Kennedy Center performance. The parsnip soup was excellent, if a bit over-decorated, while the Caesar salad was a strange, though tasty, construction. The pappardelle were sticky and heavy. The taste was good, but the noodles needed tossing with sauce to keep them separate. The creme brûlée was topped with berries - an unnecessary addition. In general, the dishes are a tad over-thought with just that one added fillip that isn't needed or strikes a strange note. Nevertheless, this is a good addition to the possibilities in the general Foggy Bottom area and, it should be noted, the chef and server were very flexible and vigilant about my dining partner's dairy allergy."

701 is a modern American restaurant with exquisite food framed by an elegant decor. Join us in our bar & lounge for our signature cocktails and small plates or dine with us in our sumptuous dining room. During the spring & summer, our patio is tucked onto the Navy Memorial plaza, with splashing fountains providing a very Parisian feel. <br /><br />We offer pre-theater menus if you are going to a show, light fare in the lounge, and lunch at the bar specials for those tight on time. Our lunch menu is a favorite among business clientele; dinner is perfect for a special occasion or simply a special night out.

"Met friends for dinner here and, as always, found it very satisfactory. Everyone loved their choices: potato soup w mussels, beet salad, octopus, poached lobster, and others I have forgotten. It was a Monday, so rather quiet. The service was slightly inattentive, but not annoyingly so. It is always a good choice, especially if your group has a variety of tastes. There are plenty of different selections on the menu to make most people more than happy I would recommend this choice to anyone seeking good food, a slightly formal ambiance and time to enjoy it."
