Opened in 1999, and chosen by Gourmet Magazine in 2000 as one of "America's Best Restaurants," Johnny's Half Shell relocated to its present Capitol Hill location in September 2006. Renditions of Chesapeake and Gulf Coast Seafood remained the kitchen's focus, and the restaurant's new home maintained its homespun conviviality. Said Washingtonian Magazine, "The capitol dome shines in the background, a reminder of the new, more serious-minded neighbors who come here. But Johnny's still feels like home." In September 2007, New York Times dubbed the new venue a "Capital Gain" for Washington, DC.

Open for Lunch, Dinner & Brunch. We opened our doors on March 22nd, 2011 with the intention of treating tacos with a high level of respect and serving them in a fun environment.  Which is how I believe tacos should be enjoyed. We designed the menu with the idea that most ingredients worth eating can benefit further by being placed atop a well-made tortilla. We push our kitchen team to explore the ubiquitous flavors that we all love about Mexican cooking in this country as well as the less obvious ones that we all should love. Empellon's approach to cuisine is informed by authenticity but is not limited by it. <br />

"Chef Ivy Stark prepared a brunch in honor of Mexican Independence Day. The dishes were creative, nicely presented, and full of flavor. A few at my table complained that a couple of dishes were too salty. The almond crusted torrejas with concord grape jelly was a lovely way to end brunch. I'd visit one of Chef Stark's restaurants in the future."

"I enjoy visiting Ripple because Chef Marjorie frequently introduces new dishes to the menu. The visit was no exception. I tried the sunchoke soup, bone marrow, and fried tofu. Each dish was rich in flavor, reasonably priced and a manageable portion. Fred, the bartender, paired each dish with a good wine choice that highlighted the subtle flavor elements of the dish. I can't wait return again and see what else Chef Marjorie has created."

The Sushi Ko food philosophy is Cuisine of Subtraction. According to Creative Director Daisuke Utagawa, subtraction allows chefs to reveal the essence of each ingredient in it's most honest yet refined state. By subtly combining other ingredients, a taste sensation is created that demonstrates the complexity and beauty of nature for the eye and the palate.

Degustation presents a provocative menu of Iberian, French and American influenced cuisine in a dynamic yet intimate bar setting, with an open kitchen. The local market inspired menu pairs beautifully with the hand selected wine offering.

The newest Chef Geoff's restaurant is the go-to destination on the Pike. Located across from Montrose Crossing, Chef Geoff's Rockville is the perfect spot for a business lunch or family dinner in a friendly and energetic atmosphere. Only minutes from the Strathmore, we're the perfect location for pre-theater dining. A three course Sunset Special is offered daily from 4-6:30 pm for $23.95. Need a break from work? There is no better place than our newly renovated bar for all-day happy hour Monday and Tuesday. Or join us for our ever-growing Bacon Bar on Wednesday and Thursday where we truly believe bacon goes great with everything. Have a case of the Mondays? We have the solution with ½ price bottles of wine every Monday. We are excited to finally be a part of your neighborhood and hope that you will come join us soon. Cheers! Chef Geoff

Brasserie Beck is a contemporary European style brasserie in the "new urbanist" Kentland's community. The original location was opened by critically acclaimed, chef/owner Robert Wiedmaier in NW Washington D.C. in 2007. Wiedmaier stays true to his Belgian roots creating and cooking casual, affordable fare in the "brasserie style" of serving all day from lunch to late night. Beck is an ideal place for a quick meal anytime of the day; oysters from the raw bar, moules & frites with a trio of homemade dipping sauces, a Charcuterie Plate or the classic Belgian mainstay of Beef Carbonnade or Mountain Trout Amandine. Beck's stunning and spacious bar boasts the area's most comprehensive Belgian beer list outside Belgium with 17 draught beers and 150 offered by the bottle. This location also features an outdoor patio and sizable private dining space. We welcome everyone to the newest Brasserie Beck in Maryland.
