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.

"Our server was right when he said, "All the food on the menu is good." I had shrimp cocktail as a starter. It was ice-cold and delicious. Then I had the farro salad as my entree, and chocolate napoleon for dessert. My dining companion had the oysters as a starter (huge!) and the plate of the day (la plat du jour), which was beef short rib. The beef was like butter.
Service was very, very attentive. We didn't wait very long for anything to be brought to our table. They seem to try and make you feel like you have your own personal server waiting on you every second.
The only downside is, we did feel a little rushed, like they wanted to turn the table over quickly.
All in all though, it was wonderful and we'll be back!"

Coastal gastropub cuisine, eclectic wine, handcrafted cocktails, cold beers, laid back livin', all just 133 steps from the Atlantic Ocean.<br><br />Blurring the boundary between a night in with friends and an evening on the town, we are a locally owned and operated establishment.<br><br />Our kitchen’s mantra comes from Julia Child: "You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces, just good food from fresh ingredients."<br><br />In other words, we choose not to get in the way of the food—we’d rather let the ingredients speak for themselves.<br><br />And if a drink is all you need, we’ve got you covered. Tasty craft beers on draft, great wines from all over the world and a cocktail list like you’ve never seen before.<br><br />We bring all of this to your table every night, in a relaxed beach cottage atmosphere, with the friendliest service we know how to give.<br><br />There you have it: Shorebreak Lodge.<br />

"We enjoyed our food (surf 'n turf and crab cakes) and the staff was attentive and friendly. I loved the decor. The bar seems popular with locals and we were there at happy hour, so it was crowded. Would definitely try again when in Rehoboth!"
