For years, owners Nat Ongsangkoon & Dia Khanthongthip have dreamed of bringing Thai market foods to DC, and are excited about the canvas Soi 38 presents. As natives of Bangkok, Thailand, they grew up relishing trips to the night market for some of the best food in Thailand, and are excited to bring this collection of street foods to Washington, DC.<br /><br />Inspired by the underground eateries around Bangkok’s night markets, Soi 38 features creative Thai street foods, hearty Thai favorites and a bar program featuring draft and bottled cocktails to DC’s West End neighborhood.<br /><br />The name Soi 38 is based on the iconic street food district and night market of the same name in Bangkok. As evening falls in Thailand, the Soi 38 night market transforms into a high energy, open-air food market crowded with stalls and rickety furniture where vendors dish out authentic Thai food favorites until the early-morning hours.

Under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, America Eats Tavern pays tribute to the country’s culinary legacy with a sophisticated menu reflecting native ingredients and classic dishes throughout history. Here you’ll find traditional variations of soups and salads, sandwiches, seafood and meats, as well as innovative creations by José and his team. An expansive seafood bar, variety of oyster dishes and selection of local hams reflect local and historical roots to complement the menu's seasonal offerings. A drink menu traces the evolution of the cocktail in America throughout a range of eras, while the wine list highlights local and remarkable vineyards and producers throughout the nation. America Eats Tavern by José Andrés' patriotic and stylishly artistic setting within The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner is the perfect setting for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and serves as the ideal gathering place for and around the Northern Virginia and the Washington area.

Chef/Owner Robert Wiedmaier of Marcel's opens a casual, contemporary brasserie named after his younger son. The stunning space features an open steel and glass kitchen visible from three sides, set across from a unique family-style chef's table, dramatic 22-foot ceilings and a raw bar located at the end of a grand marble and walnut bar featuring an array of Belgian beers on tap to complement his French Belgian fare. Expansive outdoor patio is open April thru October. REAL certified by the US Healthful Food Council

"Brass Beck is really, really good. The frites are REALLY good.
We had a pot of the mediterranean and a pot of the thai mussels. Both of the servings were very good.
Also, the beer consultant (Dean) is a REALLY nice guy and I will be consulting with him each and every time that I visit in the future."

Featuring contemporary American fare with a focus on seasonal ingredients, BOURBON STEAK offers all-natural, organic and hormone free cuts of beef and the freshest seafood available worldwide. Prior to grilling, all meats at BOURBON STEAK are first poached to mouthwatering tenderness-red meats in butter, lamb in olive oil and pork in bacon fat. <br /><br />Keeping with the nation’s capital’s emphasis on power daytime dining, BOURBON STEAK is one of the first Michael Mina restaurants to serve lunch. Guests can anticipate new salad entrées accompanied by homemade, fresh from the oven bread, each specifically created to complement the salad it is paired with. <br /><br />Rockwell Group of New York composed a design scheme which reflects the elegant informality of Mina’s modern American cuisine, while also paying tribute to the classical stature of the hotel. Natural materials and crafted accents surround the space, from seeded and rubbed glass, to stitched leather and wood.

Osteria Morini pays homage to the casual and rustic cuisine and ambiance of the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy. Osteria Morini is a casual Italian restaurant from Chef Michael White. In Italian, “osteria” means a place where the owner “hosts” guests, and at Osteria Morini, Chef White continues this tradition of hospitality, transforming his first Washington, D.C. restaurant into an authentic, old-world osteria with soulful food from the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy.

"I had brunch at Morini on Novmber 16. We had a variety of dishes including the testa, crostini and panzanella. All of the food was first class and would easily return to Morini for any meal. The outdoor patio was not open (too cold) but I believe this would make a nice spot for warm weather dining."
