A modern vegetable restaurant by Chefs Richard Landau & Kate Jacoby, formerly of Horizons: Located in the historic Tiger Building on Locust Street, Vedge offers classical, elegant dining experiences as well as a sophisticated bar. The menu takes a fresh approach to cooking vegetables, presented in a series of mid-size plates. Think: Smoked Eggplant Braciole, Salt-Roasted Golden Beets, Wood-Grilled Maitake Mushrooms.

"The server got one of our drinks wrong, but she corrected it. They used sweetened soymilk in my cappuccino and had brought out a small dish of sugar, which implied it wasn't sweetened. I added sugar before tasting, which made the drink overly sweet.
Despite these missteps, we enjoyed the food and would definitely go here again."

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!"
