Chef Sean A. Wight’s vision of an affordable yet stylish dining and social club is born in Frog Hollow Tavern. Located on the 1200 block of Broad Street, the space is a modern “Restaurant meets Bar” where a diverse crowd of people enjoy the company of others paired with a comfortable atmosphere, detailed service, and exquisite affordable cuisine. <br /> Expect a dinner menu that features a substantial amount of local and regionally grown seasonal quality ingredients, and menu that offers unique libations, which encourages an active and lively upscale bar scene.<br /> The wine list that boasts over a hundred value driven wines has a focus on sustainable, organic, or bio-dynamic practices. The bar also features a diverse offering of Scotches, Cognacs, Bourbons, and Vodkas, and includes many great classic and seasonal cocktails, all made with fresh squeezed juices and homemade mixes.

"This place is worth it. Great farm to table food, cooked with Southern flair, a knowledgeable and friendly wait staff, warm décor and a perfect location make the Frog Hollow the BEST restaurant in town. This time I had the chef's special rendition of Shrimp and Grits. My friend had the Quail -- both were the tastiest best food I had all week. An extensive and affordable wine list top off the place. I also like that I could have a conversation with my dinner partner and we could hear each other -- what a pleasant change, even thought the restaurant was full. Get a reservation and enjoy this place."

Located in Pentagon Row, Lebanese Taverna serves authentic Middle Eastern fare in a casual yet stylish setting. The menu boasts over 25 appetizers and salads as well as a variety of grilled lamb, beef, chicken and fish entrees. There is a large selection of vegetarian dishes, too. To complement your dining experience, choose from our award-winning wine list or specialty cocktails. The restaurant is child-friendly and great for groups of all sizes.

"Whenever out-of-towners come to D.C. this is the place to go. This is a good news success story of a real entrepreneur who really made it by cooking Lebanese food extremely well. The flavors and seasonings offer something for everyone. My major complaint is that it is too LOUD to have a pleasant conversation."
