Stephen Starr brings his signature brand of hospitality and design to the nation’s capital with the opening of Le Diplomate, located at 14th & Q. Serving lunch, brunch and dinner, the stylish 260 seat restaurant transports diners to the beloved cafés of Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. The extensive menu features a variety of classic dishes including Onion Soup Gratinee, Steak Frites, and Poulet Roti as well as contemporary bistro fare, with dishes such as Shaved Veal Tongue with Mache and Bavette de Boeuf à l’Echalote. A thoughtfully curated wine list and cocktail program perfectly complements the cuisine and creates an environment suitable for romantic dinners or lively group gatherings. In warmer weather, enjoy dining "en plein air" in the stunning outdoor café where you can take in the bustling energy of DC while sipping on the perfect kir royale.

"I now understand why all the critics and everyone else to whom I've talked have such good things to say about this restaurant. It's a real delight. I would go back often if I could afford it."

DGS Delicatessen features both traditional & modern Jewish cooking in Dupont Circle.<br>Chef Brian Robinson takes inspiration from the classic delicatessen, while pushing the cuisine in a new and exciting direction. DGS offers 8 day house cured pastrami & corned beef, reubens, handmade pierogis & matzo ball soup, house cured cold smoked salmon.<br>DGS believes that delicatessen, German for good eats, comes from the soul of the old World Jewish kitchen. In that spirit, DGS brines, cures, smokes and pickles everything served on premises.<br>Beverage Director Brian Zipin crafted a beer, wine and cocktail menu amplifying the bold flavors of the delicatessen. <br><br> **Please note: Saturday & Sunday Brunch tables are Walk In only**

"Food and service are consistently first rate. Every effort is made to accommodate special requests. Hostess was apologetic on a recent visit when our favorite table we had requested when making our reservation was not yet available; we chose another table rather than wait. But we didn't mind because she was so pleasant about it. New menu items are delightful. It's a fine restaurant."
