As the recipient of one star from the prestigious Michelin Guide and the only Forbes five star rated restaurant in Washington, DC, Plume at The Jefferson hotel serves as a discreet and elegant backdrop to the artistry of our award-winning culinary team. Choose a cozy nook or a table by our inviting fireplace as you savor classic dishes crafted using traditional techniques and seasonal fine dining restaurant menus that are inspired by the harvest from Thomas Jefferson's kitchen gardens at Monticello. Plume's wine list spans more than a dozen nationalities and consists of over 1,300 labels, including the country's largest Madeira collection, currently offering one of last bottles of 1720 Madeira in the world. The wine selection consists of over 50 vintages, many of which we believe Jefferson would have enjoyed were he alive today, including a range of labels from his native Virginia.
