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 had been before for brunch amd greatly enjoyed the whole experience. We were excited to try it for dinner but the experience was a mess. Despite having a reservation for a month and being there for our 5 year anniversary, our table wasnt ready when we arrived and made us wait about 20 minutes. We arrived at 7:46 for a 7:45 reservation and the host told us our table would be ready closer to our reservation time. Huh? Then they seated us at a freezing cold table near the door where others at nearby tables were abandoning but I didnt want to bother. Even our server said it was cold. Unlike at brunch previously, no one came over to ask how we were doing. I assume they didnt want to hear about the cold or were overwhelmed by the busy restauran"
