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.

Chef Mike Isabella opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella draws inspiration from Northern Greece to create a menu of spreads, breads, vegetables and other small plates, including his signature wood-grilled octopus. Two wood-fire grills with rotating spits and a large oven for stone-baked flat breads service the 160-seat restaurant. Guests enjoy carvings from whole animals that have been spit-roasted all day, including lamb, goat, duck, chicken, and suckling pig. Kapnos is open for dinner seven nights a week.

"Small plates are good overall - but of the 5 we ordered there was one miss. Fava beans with corn was listed on the menu. While fava beans was the first-listed ingredient on the menu, one would expect the dish to contain fava beans primarily. However, the dish appeared to be 100% corn. Perhaps there were beans inside the dish but they were crushed and pulverized if they were present at all. There was no hint of any presence or taste of fava beans. This dish needs reworking. Nobody wants to pay $10 for a dish of mushy corn."

Cozy neighborhood bistro and roof deck in the heart of Shaw, DC. Our beautifully appointed dining room is the perfect location for a special occasion dinner with your significant other or a celebratory dinner with a group of your closest friends and family. Our roof deck boasts picturesque vistas of the DC skyline, and is ideal for a leisurely glass of wine, some tasty bar snacks, and catching up with good friends. <br />

"I usually enjoy the food but the "Friday Special" pulled pork sandwich was way too small for the price and the side of brussel sprout slaw was practically inedible due to the amount of vinegar. I left the restaurant looking for another place to get more food."

"The server was right out of a Saturday Night Live skit constantly bothering us. I like server attention but we thought we were being punked how much she kept coming by to annoy us. Food is average here and portions are too small for the price."
