At Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, our culinary mission is straightforward - use the best local ingredients as simply as possible. New American Cuisine places an emphasis on seasonal ingredients that are regionally available, and our menu changes frequently to reflect the Mid-Atlantic’s offerings. The first floor, a bustling, “upscale-casual” bistro and wine bar, offers superior moderately-priced cuisine by using the best local, organic, and naturally raised ingredients. The menu bears a southern European influence, and is comprised of four groups: cheese and charcuterie, handmade pasta and pizzas, wood-grilled meats and fish, and organic salads and produce. The second floor features a lounge and reserve wine bar along with a dining room for private events. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be taken by telephone or through OpenTable.<br />$20/bottle corkage fee (2 bottle maximum)<br />$3/person cake fee (including cupcakes)

"Sat at bar and had salad and pizza. Kale salad was nothing special but the garden salad was decent. Had a spicy pizza and it wasn't bad-the bartender seemed too busy chatting to worry about waiting on us or getting things we had requested. But it was Ok."

Established in 1856, Old Ebbitt Grill is the oldest dining saloon in Washington, DC. Across from the White House, Old Ebbitt serves American Cuisine, and offers the largest selection of oysters in DC. Open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night dining, and Saturday and Sunday Brunch. Casual dining with service to locals and visitors alike.

"Read reviews about this being the oldest restaurant in DC and moderately priced so figured why not? Split a crab cake for appetizer which was very good but was shocked to see they charged us only one dollar less than if we'd ordered one as an entree, but we were minus the sides. I ordered a salmon salad which was very good. Salmon cooked perfectly and brought out piping hot on a bed of spinach and frisée with blood oranges, almonds and pecorino cheese. My daughter had fish and chips which were also piping hot and she really enjoyed them. We were there on a day the entire government was shut down due to snow and our waiter gave us lively advice on where we could go for bars food and shopping which was very kind."
