Since 1999, Chef Wiedmaier infuses his Belgian heritage into Marcel's elegant haute French flagship restaurant. Regularly topping the best-of-lists in the nation's capital, in 2011 and 2012, it was rated the top restaurant for food by Zagat as well as one of the top five restaurants for service. <br /><br />

"Marcel's has been a favorite of mine for years - literally 25 years. Most restaurants can't keep a consistently good menu and staff going for 5 years - much less 25. Their pre-theatre menu is fantastic before a show at the KenCen or other DC venues and the food and wine are always spectacular. It's expensive, but well worth what you pay for it in both food and experience. We need more restaurants like Marcel's in Washington!"

J. Gilbert's is an "upscale casual" steakhouse serving prime-aged beef cooked over a mesquite wood-fired grill. Guests enjoy various cuts of steak, fresh seafood (including award-winning crab cakes) & other house made favorites like the Maytag Bleu potato chips & Carrot Cake. The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy a quiet table or host a large party. The extensive martini & wine list offers the perfect compliment to an excellent meal delivered with attentive service. J. Gilbert's is open for weekend lunch, dinner 7 days a week & Sunday Brunch. Reservations are recommended.
