A midtown classic with sprawling views of the NYC. Located in the heart of Midtown, this steakhouse offers incredible service and great food in a beautiful three level space. Known for having one of the city's best wine lists and bar scenes, Del Frisco's is the perfect place for small groups and parties of up to 80.

"Fantastic food, superb service (thanks Pamela!), in a causal atmosphere. The kale salad is terrific, and the pollo al forno is every bit as good as everyone says. Some very nice wines by the glass in addition to a nice wine list."

Enjoy Chef Geoff's genuine hospitality and casual cuisine with an Italian flair. Lia’s is a neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Chevy Chase. Come for a glass of wine, hand tossed pizzas, fresh pasta, or charcuterie and cheese, and the result will be the same. You'll be back for more. Join us on Sundays for brunch and every Monday for half price wines. Enjoy our ever-popular happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm and all night on Monday and Tuesday. An eighty seat patio provides some of the best outdoor dining in the area. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you. Cheers! Chef Geoff

"Great food, fantastic service, and (always before) a great atmosphere--though for this visit they were having problems with the satellite radio music which was making a real racket--a very pleasant meal with my wife and our two guests went from great to pretty sorry."

"The food was excellent--the scallops and risotto and the tenderloin cobb salad were super. Gabrielle, our waiter, was absolutely outstanding, as always. The ambience is tops--very comfortable and it's easy to talk with friends. We keep going back and are never disappointed."

Gertrude's Restaurant, located inside the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA), is where John Shields celebrates Chesapeake cuisine using local foods, in a warm and stylish setting. Chef & owner John Shields, a Baltimore native who is a cookbook author and television cooking show host, named the restaurant after his grandmother, Gertrude Cleary, who taught him to cook as a child. Gertrude's dishes up a sophisticated regional menu of Chesapeake foods and traditions for lunch, dinner, and brunch using local, organic ingredients whenever possible. The restaurant's interior, inspired by life on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, is beautiful & elegant yet comfortable. The wall of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the museum’s Sculpture Garden floods the open & airy dining room with natural light. During the warmer months, additional seats are available on the terrace surrounding a fountain and reflecting pool.

"Excellent food, as always, and terrific service--thank you Katherine. The noise in the packed restaurant and musicians made it difficult to talk--we'll be happy when the tented area in the back is available."

"Excellent food, superb service (thanks Josh), and a nice atmosphere with moderate prices. My ONLY complaint was my seat next to the doors in the Right Bank room, where there was a cold draft coming in--this may be the only bad seat in the house. With a full house and us a party of 7, I did not ask to move to another table."

"Another terrific meal at Black's. The oysters were great, the burger and fries are one of the best in DC, and the wine by the glass selection is very nice. At lunch on New Year's Day, the restaurant was great--with a low noise level, and great service. We keep going back and are always happy when we do!"
