Michel Richard's modern American brasserie,and winner of the 2008 James Beard award for best new restaurant is located on Penn. Ave NW between the White House and the Capitol. We serve Michel's tribute to great American cuisine, both modern and classic, with a French accent. A vibrant bar scene with boutique beer and wines, and modern and classic cocktails.

"I arranged brunch for 8, and had high hopes for the food and ambience. First thing I noticed was the noise level -- the music was loud, and therefore so was the level one needed to speak to be heard.
The drinks were good, and the service very prompt (as was filling the "bottomless drinks"). I had the soup and eggs benedict, both good, but my dining companions were disappointed -- their advice? Do not order the steak and eggs, and the chicken + waffle was pretty lackluster too.

At Terrasole Ristorante our wine selection is diverse and complex enough to complement any palate, our cuisine is Northern Italian , traditional dishes with chef's contemporary spin. Experience a taste of Italy at Terrasole Ristorante.

"We were looking for a place to eat before a concert at Ridgefield Playhouse, and Terrasole is a perfect fit.... good Italian food, very close to our evening venue. We each had a glass of wine...and an appetizer (1 soup, 1 salad), I had pasta, hubby had meat dish and we had dessert. The bill? $200, which seemed a tad high to me."

This is POST 154, a restaurant, bar and gathering place with a fresh outlook on our modern day food culture. The space is grand, the Chef is fearless, and the concept is a simple one.<br /><br /><br />Post 154's PATIO is second to none. Join us for Lunch/Dinner or apps and drinks in the comfy lounge areas.<br /><br /><br />The menu at POST 154 is bold and vibrant featuring an eclectic repertoire which incorporates Chef Rosado’s sphere of influences from his travels and mentors. The ingredients are sourced locally and from afar, wherever it makes sense while keeping seasonality and quality at the forefront. <br /><br /><br />The beverage program at POST 154 is just as impressive. A global wine list, craft beer selection and cocktails that are anything but typical are sure to add to the convivial social scene at this new Westport restaurant and gathering place.

"I wish the food was better, as Post 154 is in a great location. Our appetizers were very yummy -- I had the beets and goat cheese, while my hubby had the duck chili nachos. He had the C.A.B. strip for a main course -- which came well overcooked and dry. My pork chop was also over cooked, and the mac n cheese too creamy (yes, there is such a thing). Next time we'll double down on the apps."

If a special evening of dining is in your plans, look no further than Kimball’s Kitchen, formerly the Left Bank. Located on the Soundside of the Sanderling Resort, Kimball’s offers glorious view of the Currituck Sound and its inspiring sunsets, outstanding service and a world class menu. Kimball’s Kitchen offers everything that is special about both the Sanderling and the Outer Banks.<br /> <br />Spotlighting local, grass-fed prime steaks, freshly caught local seafood, and an extensive raw bar selection, the restaurant creates a great dining experience with an upscale coastally casual environment. Of particular note are the numerous varieties of local oysters and the classic seafood tower, with a daily changing list of locally caught fish and seafood. Daily pasta and risotto specials are accompanied by an extensive Wine Spectator wine and champagne list. Children are welcome and are served smaller portions of the standard menu with a 50% price break.<br />

"Kimball's is a beautiful space -- a chic restaurant in an area better known for nothing special. We really appreciated the aesthetic -- and fortunately the food and service matched the space. Not a huge menu, but plenty of choices. We had the rack of lamb and the duck -- delicious."
