Brunch & Dinner
In the best area of 14th Street, modern homage to authentic Mexican Cuisine, featuring local ingredients that result in exquisite and vibrant creations.

It´s all about the corn - the maiz - at this upscale Mexican stunner. Four kinds are turned into fresh masa daily for the tacos, tamales, and other corn-bassed essentials, and even the art on the walls is corn-themed.

Vegetables and fish are one of the Chef's great specialties, including tuna tostada and yellow ceviche, culminating with the traditional catch of the day.

Mezcal Room an extensive bar downstairs, we have a lot of Mexican spirits, including most famous Oaxacan beverage mezcal. There’s a wide spectrum of mezcals, with dozens of flavors ranging

We are a universe of colors, of textures, of flavors; the print of hands worn down legends that draw the magic of a culture willing to be discovered.

About the restaurant
MICHELIN-starred Chef Matt Baker's second restaurant is an homage to his late mother. This deeply personal menu draws inspiration from her love of classic French fare. The menu features bistro and brasserie classics, influenced by the mid-Atlantic region's seasons and bounty.

Guests can enjoy the bar and lounge, perfect for dining solo or gathering with friends. Weekends are reserved for delectable brunch options, served alongside craft cocktails. A slight departure from his highly-acclaimed Michelin-starred restaurant, Gravitas- the approach to all things culinary at Michele's is just as seasonal and serious, but playful and accessible.

Start your week off right with Burger Monday! Exclusive Burgers and Speciality Priced Beer are offered every Monday, 4:00-10:00 pm.

We had a lovely meal, prepared traditionally. We mixed appetizers and sushi, plus a seaweed salad. The sushi was fresh including the Hokkaido uni. An appetizer I especially liked consisted of thin slices of fish layered atop slender potato sticks. Our sake began slightly sweet and finished dry. All this with attentive staff and a fair price point. I’ll be back.

About the restaurant
“Mi Vida” translates to “My Life.” However, in Mexico, “Mi Vida” means much more. “Mi Vida” is a term of endearment bestowed on close family and friends to signify love, care and importance. When one says, “Mi Vida,” they are telling someone special how much they mean to them. MI VIDA describes how we feel about our team and our guests. It is our expression of Mexican culture and cuisine as interpreted through the lens of Chef Roberto Santibañez. Our menu is rooted in the history and culinary tradition of Mexico while exploring the ever-changing boundaries of this vibrant and evolving cuisine.

We chose Don Jorge's at the last minute as there were not a lot of choices on a Saturday night. The reviews looked good, so we gave it a try. We are so glad we did! If you like Tex-Mex food, this is the place to go. There was a DJ that also sang and had a surprisingly good voice. The decor is simple yet clean. And the food was great. Everything we tried was perfect including the freshly made salsa. If you are in the mood for Tex-Mex, I would highly recommend Don Jorge's!

We experienced their unlimited small plate brunch for the first time this past Sunday and were VERY impressed! We sat upstairs at a standard table (which I think helped speed the service as we were very near the kitchen). Among the favorites -- spicy chicken and biscuit, avocado toast, meatballs and the arugula salad. Everything was super flavorful and fresh. A great way to start a weekend day!

About the restaurant
Our restaurant's atmosphere is what we would call casual elegance. On our main floor, we have a full dining room, bar, and we call this our "wine bar". The wine bar also has front porch and back patio seating as well. Our wine list has over 100 wines from various regions. We offer multiple bottled wines and a phenomenal selection by the glass as well. Our basement, or as we all know it the pub, has 12 beers on draft, an extensive liquor selection, and a very inviting and comforting atmosphere. Both floors offer the same supper menu, with the exception of the happy hour menu. That is only served in the pub Tuesday-Friday from 4-6. Our third floor is used for overflow seating and private events. Our motto is that when you're here, you're home, and we strive to meet that with every guest. Come in and enjoy a beautiful, local, farm to table meal. We'd love to have you!
