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 was so excited to go to Le Diplomate for some time and finally was able to make reservation a month in advance. To my surprise, my experience was not that great. We were seated at table right next to the kitchen and the door so froze our butts off. Geez, for a month's advance reservation, would have expected better seating. It was so crowded I wasn't even able to take a look at the restaurant to get a feel for it. On top of that, the food wasn't that great. Maybe b/c it was brunch. It's basically what you get at any restaurant now for brunch and was hoping for something more special. Will consider going at lunch or dinner. Never back for brunch. Thanks!"
