The Oval Room, an elegant & sophisticated restaurant, near Farragut Square across from the White House, which accounts for its popularity among politicians, journalists, lobbyists, lawyers, & former Presidents. The setting is contemporary & chic. It offers private dining. Its seasonal contemporary American cuisine has charmed critics & connoisseurs alike. USA Today said The Oval Room's flower-bedecked patio is one of the best outdoor dining experiences in the United States. The Oval Room has been awarded the "Distinguished Restaurant of North America Award".The Oval Room is honored to be Modern Luxury Washington D.C.’s “Restaurant of the Year”! Executive Chef Tony Conte and his team are serving some incredible, seasonal dishes and would love to see you at The Oval Room soon.

"Really great experience, Oval Room offered a Thanksgiving prix fixe menu with five entree. My wife went with the traditional fare (white/dark meat, chestnut dressing, cranberry sauce) which was exceptional. I went with the butternut risotto, again a really good meal. The beet salad & pear/parsnip soup were both nice openers as were the apple tart & bread pudding for desert. Not bad at $50 a head."

Rustico is the quintessential neighborhood pub on the edge of Old Town Alexandria. The menu features seasonal, hearty American fare from a wood-fired oven and grill, including pizzas and rotisserie meats, along with other rustic cuisine using the freshest local ingredients available. There’s also no mistaking Rustico’s love for barley & hops! The bar’s focal point is a custom galvanized inverted T bar with 30 brilliant taps book-ended by two massive coolers holding more than 400 different types of ales, lagers, ciders and stouts.

"Ordered the pork chop & went with chef's medium-rare recommendation. It actually was closer to rare so sent it back to finish cooking. The beer selection is impressive though."

"Great concept, but the execution left a lot to be desired. Diners are greeted with a deafening roar as you enter the restaurant through the extremely loud bar. The waitress explained that the menu consisted of tapas, medium, & large plates, but at no time did she indicate the meals would be delivered in that order. My wife had a tapas, a salad (medium plate), & I had a large plate. Each was delivered at different times. A smart wait staff would have asked "Would you like those delivered at the same time?" Ours didn't & this detracted from the night out as my wife sat across the table & looked at me over her beet salad, waiting for my lamb shank to be delivered. Get it right Teddy."
