We wanted a nice plant-based meal in a restaurant without it just being the typical sandwich/salad/juice bar that we were finding as options for vegan food. Equinox was amazing! We had a fancy dinner and chose the plant-based tasting menu with the wine pairing. The staff was so attentive and knowledgeable about what was being served, presentation of everything was wonderful, and we thoroughly enjoyed every bit of our 5 course meal with excellent wines that were paired so well. We will definitely return!

We live nearby but haven't been to I Ricchi, one of our favorite restaurants, since well before COVID. We are so happy it's still there and preparing the same high-quality Italian dishes with the same high-quality, friendly service. We took a friend from Ukraine there last evening, someone with very refined tastes, and she was suitably impressed. Our dishes - Branzino and Rigatoni with 12-hour Beef Ragu, were perfect and delicious. I Ricchi may well be the best Italian restaurant in DC.

This has been my favorite haunt for a long time, but I think I'm going to have to retire it. After my last 3 experiences of acceptable service, I think it's time to move it along.

Felt like home! Brought my wife and a party of 10 for her bday! We had the back patio to ourselves for dinner and the food was wonderful. Got a tour from the owner and we we're welcomed like 1st class friends and family. We had an absolute blast. Such a great venue to get away from mainstream hustle and bustle. The owner is incredibly talented and was very accommodating. Incredible vibes and we hope to go back soon. Much love to the entire staff and regulars who made us feel so welcome.
