Rasika, which is derived from Sanskrit meaning "flavors,” is the award-winning modern Indian restaurant owned by Ashok Bajaj. Leading the kitchen is Group Executive Chef Vikram Sunderam, a 2012 nominee for Best Chef Mid-Atlantic from the James Beard Foundation. Rasika has consistently earned four stars in the coveted Dining Guide of The Washington Post, and is in the top tier of Washingtonian magazine’s annual “100 Best.” Esquire magazine named it among the country’s best new restaurants in 2008 and Food & Wine magazine also stated that Rasika is “One of the hottest restaurants in the world.” Rasika showcases authentic Indian fare prepared on the Tawa (griddle), Sigri (open barbeque), as well as Tandoori and regional dishes. The restaurant is also noted for its international wine list, innovative cocktails and intimate, plush dining room. For private dining, Rasika has an exclusive space that can seat up to 16 guests and a semi-private area for up to 28.

"We had the spinach appetizer, black cod, and lamp chops, along with assorted breads. A true feast, each dish exquisitively prepared. Can't imagine a better Indian meal. Was wondering if this offshoot would be as good as the original - it is, and the open space, light (we were there for lunch), and clever use of the space made the dining experience that much the better. And our waiter was great with suggestions and commentary. Superb experience."

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”!

"Excellent service. Well conceived offerings with a diverse selection. The two of us enjoyed excellent soup and truffle pasta starters and salmon and duck (not to be missed) entres. When we wanted a lighter dessert we were offered a pleasing sorbet. Excellent, attentive but not overbearing service. Great place to have a serious conversation without having to shout or strain to hear. Will be back."
