Tucked up along the historic C&O Canal, a national park that threads through the Georgetown neighborhood, The Grill Room specializes in hand-cut, bone-in, artisan meats, bracingly fresh seafood and tableside preparations. Framed with a wall of floor to ceiling windows and fluid geometric lines, the ambiance is one of relaxed refinement.

"It's great to have Frank Ruta back in DC preparing his terrific food, and everything here hits the mark if not exceeding it. Unfortunately, the service does not match the food. It's slow and plodding and uneven. For example, it took 20 minutes for our cocktail order to be taken. And at the end of the meal, the table next to us received a small treat from the kitchen, but we did not. That's not a good thing!"

An American Anthem to Life + Table<br /><br />With his motorcycle license plate “BRAISE,” he is seeking out good fortune in the bounty and thoughtfulness of American farming, and bringing this centuries-old craft into the spotlight at ~Gypsy Soul~. This goes beyond farm-to-table. It is about the gathering of people and how each of us in this great community is connected by this common thread when we dine together. It is the conversation of food with guests and the love affair with it.<br /><br />The menu features American fare both classic and contemporary, strong in flavor. Talented Cheftender Bryan Tetorakis from Rogue 24 designed the entire beverage repertoire. From local spirits from around the Mid-Atlantic and South to wines and cans of beer, there is a libation for all to imbibe on while enjoying Chef’s cuisine.

Palm Restaurant...The Classic American Steak House is renowned for its USDA prime aged steaks, jumbo Nova Scotia lobsters, Italian dishes, the freshest of seafood, warm smiles, outstanding service and an atmosphere like nowhere else. If you can't find your representative on Capitol Hill, you better check Palm Restaurant in Washington DC. Since 1972, Palm Restaurant has built a loyal guest base made up of the who's who of Washington, including the political elite, the city's socialites, power brokers and media personalities such as Tucker Carlson and Bob Schieffer who can also be seen among the hordes of loyal Palm Restaurant guests. <br />
