This restaurant is conveniently located just a block from the Newseum. Even though pricey for our taste, (lunch was over $100) we decide to splurge as this was our last restaurant to visit on our trip to DC. From the entrance to the main dining room, this establishment screams tradition. The art, the decor and the staff all seemed designed to serve the Washington DC elite. I was frankly a little intimidated when we were being seated, but relaxed once I notice a fair share of the clients being served with visitors like ourselves.
The tables were a little too close together, which I find intimidating when trying to hold a conversation. The waiter who cared for us, was pleasant, but not very helpful with suggestions or information. Frankly I think he scowled when we mentioned we wanted to share a main entre.
The food was very good, very well season and presented with an elegance you would expect with a restaurant of this caliber. We enjoyed the meal, the soft background music and classic painting the surround the dining area.
It was good finale for our dining experiences in Washington DC and memorable meal.
