NOLA. New Orleans Shorthand for a return address with a hurricane swirl.... the strength of the storm by which Emeril Lagasse has taken his adopted home New Orleans with a whirlwind of fresh adaptations of classic Creole cuisine. Located in the French Quarter, this hip & fun restaurant's decor is almost as playful & sophisticated as its menu. Come & see how Emeril Lagasse breathes new life into the New Orleans cuisine he loves. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual to business casual with no tank tops for men. Joshua Laskay, Chef de Cuisine, and Averriel Thomas, General Manager, are dedicated to providing you with that memorable dining experience.

"Excellent food. I had stuffed chicken wings, a first for me. They were great. I followed that up with a seafood entree, which was also superb. Service was quite attentive. I would definitely recommend this place and I would return."

BLT Steak's design integrates select traditional elements of the French "Bistro" and an American "Steakhouse". A lighter environment has been created that is enhanced by the richness of Macassar Ebony tables and matching suede. A 25-foot bar greets diners with an excellent array of libations for pre- or post- dining pleasure including an oyster and shellfish raw bar.

"In my opinion, BLT continues to serve the finest steak in the city (although Charlie Palmer is a close second). My wife and I both enjoyed superbly done filets. The sides we had (potato skins, creamed spinach, mashed potatoes, onion rings) are top-notch. Service is exceptionally attentive."

K Street, the road to the White House, is also the proud home to P.J. Clarke’s—the storied American Saloon with a history that dates back to the late 1800s. The original P.J. Clarke’s in Manhattan has stood beneath rows of skyscrapers for nearly 130 years, collecting famous and infamous regulars. Appreciated for the convivial ambiance and classic fare, P.J. Clarke’s is the quintessential American Saloon. In our nation’s capitol, the story continues as oak and mosaic floors, red leather banquets and walls lined with eccentric portraits and nostalgic photos contribute to a reassuring familiarity that is classic P.J.s, but also construe a distinct Washington sensibility. Seasoned bartenders make favorite classic cocktails the right way; dexterous shuckers ply the freshest shellfish at a marble topped Raw Bar; and the old-school, convivial dining room welcomes government A-listers, students and their families and visitors to our capitol.

"The food here is fine, not superb or even great but good. I had generously portioned chicken pot pie and a side of creamed spinach, the latter of which I took home. Service was very attentive and the waitress stopped me from ordering an appetizer when she realized I had ordered the pie and the spinach because she knew how big the pie was. I appreciated that."

"The French onion soup was good but not superb. I had filet tartare, prepared and spiced very well. The best part is the chocolate bar dessert. Service is generally attentive. It's loud."

"Best Italian" - The Sunday Paper's 2007 Reader's Choice Awards. "Top 50 Restaurant" & "3-Stars" - Atlanta Journal-Constitution Exposed brick, dark wood floors & rustic colors give La Tavola its authentic trattoria feel, while progressive touches hint at its innovative cuisine. The food is simple yet creative, elegant & certainly delicious - the kind of food you could eat every day or turn into a celebration.

"Good but not superb food. The burrata appetizer features good cheese, but it's paired with a couple of vegetables that give it an odd taste. The tortellini stuffed with ricotta and swiss chard was better than average, but the veal meatballs were simply excellent (they are extremely tender). The chocolate semifreddo was also top-notch. One interesting note: this restaurant is in the heart of the South and it features only bottled iced tea. It's a perfectly fine bottled iced tea, but I don't think I have ever encountered a restaurant in the South without brewed iced tea."

"My colleague and I sampled three of the five or so dips. Two were excellent; one was watery. We also sampled three cheeses, one of which was fabulous; the other two were fine. We sampled three meats: a meatball, a lamb chop, and a chicken kabob. The lamb was probably the best I've ever eaten."

Ted's Bulletin is a real American classic joint with a bit of style - complete with savory homemade food and a friendly neighborhood atmosphere. The fare, though unabashedly familiar, is just like mom used to make but gussied up. Takes on grilled cheese, homemade pop tarts, meatloaf, and country fried steak are sure to please. Breakfast is served daily beginning at 7am. Guests can also check out our homemade pastry case with scrumptious pies, cakes, muffins, and other throw backs like oatmeal cream pies. Bulletin features its very own shaketender and barista, ready to whip up custom milkshakes - with or without alcohol and coffee favorites. Have a classic cocktail made the old fashioned way or your favorite sipping liquor served over one cube from the Macallan Ice Baller.

"Ted's is a great place for comfort food, big portions and all-day breakfast. The shakes are top-notch. All the entrees are excellent comfort food but nothing more than that. That is, if you want superb food, you're at the wrong place. This time service was excellent; it isn't always."

"The food at Oyamel is always excellent and this is a fun place to visit. The queso fundido with chorizo is great and hard to eat. The tuna ceviche was equally good. I loved the chocolate dessert."
