nopa Kitchen + Bar, a new 160 seat American brasserie in the heart of the Penn Quarter. This is the award-winning restaurateur's eighth restaurant in the nation's capitol and it serves Modern American fare. The restaurant offers lively dining in the main dining room, and also offers quieter dining options and several private dining rooms. The name represents nopa's location just north of Pennsylvania Avenue and it welcomes guests for lunch and dinner, and Sunday brunch. Our brunch is served from 11am-3pm on Sunday featuring seasonal craft mimosas.

Don't be fooled by the crowds and the noise; they are all part of the scene here at Laguna Beach's sexy and intense 230 Forest Avenue. The lean deep room seduces you to the open kitchen, bustling bar, and concrete floors, creating a space that is part modern bistro, part martini bar, and part art gallery. It's the perfect spot to see and be seen,laid back Laguna-style. Executive Chef Marc Cohen is consistently recognized as one of The OC's top chefs. You'll be ready to award him a medal, too, after tasting his flashy-to-the-eye, tickle-the-taste buds fusion appetizers and entrees. His dishes are often so stunning that they compete with the artwork on the walls, making for a thoroughly satisfying "artistic" experience.

Nestled in the south-end of the Wildwood Shopping Center, Wildwood Kitchen is a cozy, neighborhood restaurant serving the freshest of the seasons. Known for it's healthy tilt on simple ingredients, you will find dishes that are more unique and creative than other surrounding restaurants. The small bar led by Jamie Imhof is a standout, where she makes her own tonics and mixers for seasonal inspired cocktails. Wildwood Kitchen is a RW Restaurant Group restaurant, rwrestaurantgroup.com<br />

"Definitely one of our favorites. It's great for the Bethesda crowd, but the parking is much easier than downtown Bethesda. The food and service are wonderful. The only drawback might be the size of the place. I don't think they can accommodate parties larger than 4. Small groups, large service."
