Sur La Place is a cozy, fine dining gem nestled in the renowned Palisades area of Washington D.C. A Product of its' sister restaurant, Mannequin Pis, located in Olney, Maryland, Sur La Places specializes in exquisite Belgian cuisine. With over 20 varieties of Mussels and over 30 varieties of fine Belgian beer, one comes to realize that Sur La Place is not your ordinary restaurant. The menu takes a trip through Belgium, from Grilled Duck Pate or Wild Boar and Cranberry Sausage to a Seafood Bouillabaisse with Gambass, Mussels, Salmon, Sea Scallops, and Lobster. Fantastic desserts and a fully stocked bar put the cap on a great experience. With its exposed brick, deep wood hues, and dark red drapery, Sur La Place is an excellent choice for a romantic date, a business meeting, or simply a fine night out in the city. It's knowledgeable and service oriented staff are always eager to serve you and we look forward to having you as our guest.

"Mussels are decent, wish they were plumper. Fries a +. House salad very good and generously proportioned."

Proof is a wine-centric restaurant serving Modern American cuisine.<br /><br />The casual, elegant feel to this Penn Quarter destination is reflected throughout Executive Chef Haidar Karoum’s menu. Proof showcases the best local, organic and sustainable ingredients in clean, beautiful preparations, an extensive international selection of cheese and charcuterie, as well as a wine list containing over 40 by-the-glass selections and 1,000 different bottles. <br />

"After-theater dining, though kitchen closes I believe at 10pm [we were given appropriate notice]. Sicilian red wine was served at >70 degrees, had to have it cooled down. Odd for a restaurant with a wine focus. Citrus butter lettuce salad was delicious--pungent and fresh. Cheese selection nicely done. Cookies for dessert were slightly dry and really more a share-able portion than for an individual.
Prices are rather high. Overall I prefer Cork on 14th St NW in Logan/U St corridor -- more distinctly-flavored food and a superior price-performer.
