Contemporary French / American
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.

    Experience was good overall, but the food was kind of a let down. Had high hopes. Would give it another shot.

    Floor manager and server were very friendly, food was pretty good. We had oysters, mussels, crawfish linguine, shrimp cocktail & truffle parm frits. Would recommend all of them

    I ate here on a Monday evening and really enjoyed the experience! My waiter was very attentive, even to the point where I could see someone being annoyed with repeated interruptions to their meal. But I was dining alone in a new city and enjoyed him explaining the menu and making recommendations. The waiter said ladies dining alone got a few glass of champagne, which was nice, but then I saw another woman dining by herself and she didn't get any so... ? The food was the best part! I recommend the crawfish linguine. I hardly ever finish a bowl of pasta at a restaurant just because I get full so fast but the sauce was so light and the portion was perfect. I even got dessert which was also yummy - the blackberry sundae and a single espresso. 5 star experience, made me want to stay in the Eaton hotel again!

    Have you ever experienced a situation where you made a reservation at a restaurant, but upon arriving, you found it closed and dark? This happened to me at Michele’s restaurant in DC. Although their reservation option was open on an open table and they stated that they were currently open, they were actually closed on the night I had made a reservation for. The staff at Eaton informed me that the restaurant was closed that night. In my opinion, if a restaurant lacks proper organization, it may not deliver good food and service. Therefore, I would recommend avoiding this restaurant altogether.

    The portions were extremely small. Even the water glasses were tiny. Taking one sip left my glass half empty, which prompted staff to come refill my cup every 2 minutes without me asking and before my cup was even empty. I appreciate that they wanted to make sure we had water, but the constant refilling was so disruptive and could be solved if they simply had larger cups. Someone in my party ordered 2 cokes which costed $10 even though the glasses were so small and filled with so much ice that the 2 drinks combined couldn’t possibly have amounted to even 1 can of soda. Overall not worth the price

    Shorter male host was really rude. We politely asked if we could close the front door because cold air was gushing in from outside and we were freezing and he said “absolutely not.” then walked away. besides that our waiter was lovely (very italian) and the food was delicious.

    Excellent food (Inhad the mussels, which were perfectly cooked in a flavorful broth). Maitre d’ recommended the perfect wine pairing. Service was efficient without being overbearing.
