Directly across from the Verizon Center, Rosa Mexicano has been serving classic Mexican cuisine for over 20 years. Try the famous guacamole, prepared tableside, & sip a frozen pomegranate margarita while enjoying the festive, stylish and comfortable ambiance.

701 is a modern American restaurant with exquisite food framed by an elegant decor. Join us in our bar & lounge for our signature cocktails and small plates or dine with us in our sumptuous dining room. During the spring & summer, our patio is tucked onto the Navy Memorial plaza, with splashing fountains providing a very Parisian feel. <br /><br />We offer pre-theater menus if you are going to a show, light fare in the lounge, and lunch at the bar specials for those tight on time. Our lunch menu is a favorite among business clientele; dinner is perfect for a special occasion or simply a special night out.

"I went to brunch at District Commons with friends for the second time on 12.14.14. This time was not as successful. The J&B Breakfast Hash was 2/3 potatoes and very - repeat: very - little hash, though what there was, was good. My friends had the Huevos Rancheros and the Roasted Portobello Mushroom, which they enjoyed. Next time, I'll go back to the Brunch Quesadilla I had on my first visit, which was terrific. (Note: If you like short-rib hash, go to the Hotel Dupont, theirs is excellent - and generous!)"

Blue Duck Tavern, a contemporary neighborhood restaurant, invites its guests to gather and celebrate in good taste with a menu focusing on the freshest ingredients available from local purveyors and artisans. The menu notes every farm where the main ingredient for the dish was raised before its journey to the table. Dishes are genuine, time-honored and traditional -- slow roasting in wood embers, braising, preserving and smoking techniques bring the true flavors of America's great, simple and wholesome foods to the Blue Duck Tavern. <br /><br />The restaurant has an elegant residential feel through the open staff pantry and kitchen, wood-burning oven and the showpiece Molteni range.<br /><br />*Please note that for diners bringing in wine, a $35 corkage fee (per 750 ml bottle of wine), with a limit of two bottles, will be charged.

"I'm sorry to say that our November 9 dinner at Blue Duck Tavern was disappointing. I chose it because previous meals had been excellent and I was anxious to provide a nice experience for out of town guests who are used to eating very well. The smoked trout rillettes were bland and confusingly presented, the roast suckling pig had too much fat and gristle. One guest ordered sweetbreads and also had to extract gristle from several bites. The fsalad with apple, however, was very good. The service was adequate - the server was certainly congenial and knowledgeable, but there were 4 different people serving dishes over the course of the meal, in addition to people pouring water, etc. - this may be a trend but is disconcerting."
