Chef Nicholas Elmi's flagship restaurant offers an a la carte menu beginning April 5th 2023. Formerly tasting menu only, the newly renovated space focuses on Mid-Atlantic cuisine with French and Japanese influences. Our refined dining menu is complimented by our diverse wine list and stellar cocktails. We also provide a variety of spirit free beverages for those who do not imbibe.

Inquiries regarding the chef’s garden table, parties of 5 or more, or private events must be made via phone message. We happily extend a 15 minute grace period from the time of reservation and do our best to accommodate specific seating requests.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

    Laurel used to wow. There is a reason it’s no longer listed with the vernicks of the world. The sauces were I’ll prepared, the kitchen was undisciplined, and the service was lack luster. If you are looking for the Laurel of years past I fear it’s forever gone. Spend your 600 bucks somewhere else
