"La Tasca never disappoints. Huge variety of small plates, excellent brunch deal, strong drinks, and an interesting selection of sangrias. One of my go-to Penn Quarter spots."

Internationally acclaimed Chef Richard Sandoval combines traditional culinary techniques with fresh, high quality ingredients to create authentic Mexican comfort food at El Centro D.F. Designed to reflect the bustling street shops and colorful rituals of everyday life in Mexico, the restaurant is comprised of three distinct dining spaces all under one roof. The Taqueria features a casual atmosphere where a lively open kitchen serves authentic favorites. The Tequileria allows guests to dine or lounge as mixologists craft Latin cocktails from 200 Tequilas & Mezcals. Along the rooftop guests raise a glass at two open-air bars. Warm, Latin-inspired service and welcoming hospitality will round out your experience.

"Aside from one slightly obnoxious host (the hostess at the door was very sweet), my companion and I enjoyed our meal. We tried the two hash brown specials and I was very happy with the server's recommendation of the version with duck, although it wasn't as tender as I would have expected. The Mexican Latte is strong and delicious, the atmosphere is very cozy (tables quite close), and the food is soothingly satisfying. An upscale version of Belga Cafe in SE."

St. Arnold’s is a popular Cleveland Park mussel restaurant. A must is the mussels cooked in duck fat.

"I stopped off here for an impromptu happy when mussels are $11 and appetizers are half off. I had the classic St. Arnold's mussels with duck fat and they were delicious. The serving of bread is pretty tiny and we were charged an extra $3 each for I'm not sure what since each dish is supposed to come with fries, but the half-priced bottle of Prosecco kept me happy enough. I'd go back for that alone."

Bistro La Bonne’s main dishes are favorites that range from cassoulet Toulousain (cannelloni bean stew with duck confit, sausage, smoked bacon and lamb) and navarin d’agneau aux primeurs (braised leg of lamb with tomato, carrots, turnips & green beans), to grilled merguez sausage and blanquette de fruits de mer (mussels, shrimp, scallops and salmon in a champagne cream sauce).<br />If you seek authentic French cooking in the Washington area, take a spin up to U Street, where executive chef/owner Daniel Labonne tackles some of France’s more complex fare with a winning hand. <br><br>Our mission is to create a memorable dining experience for any special occasion, in addition to a simple dinner date with friends or a romantic evening with that special someone. So come and “Enjoy the Journey, at Bistro La Bonne”.

"With generous servings and affordable mimosas, this was an excellent choice for brunch. My friend enjoyed the seafood omelette and my ham and Swiss cheese one was good as well. The salmon tartare was delicious and very well proportioned. The mimosas may have been cheap, but were made with much better quality ingredients than others I've had. Add a cute table outdoors in beautiful weather and a charming Parisian host, and it was altogether a lovely dining experience."
