"Took my out-of-town sister here for dinner and we had a great experience. We ordered a couple of starters which were great (as were the handcrafted cocktails). Our mains were cooked to perfection. Would return for sure!"

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.

"Ate a weekend brunch at Le Diplomate with a friend and despite being 40 minutes late due to stupid DC traffic closures for some ridiculous marathon, the restaurant didn't give our table away (yay!). Food was great, especially the desserts!"

"Although we've lived in the neighborhood for some time now, we had never tried Arucola Oseria (and one of our neighbors had recommended it to us as well). We decided to try it out one evening mid-week for dinner. It was extremely quiet and although staff were friendly, the interior looked a bit dated. we sat at a table and next to us on the floor was a very old (and perhaps broken) electrical socket sticking out of the wall. We started with a caprese salad and stuffed calamari, followed by the fish special and mussels. The food was decent -- neither particularly fresh or amazing, but also not bad. Our bill, including a beer and glass of wine, topped over $100, so to be honest we probably won't return as didn't feel the price met the quality. Service, however was very good and attentive."
