Argentinean
Rural Society is a contemporary Argentine steakhouse from nationally renowned master of Latin cuisine Chef Jose Garces. Inspired by his travels to South America, Rural Society is at once rustic and luxurious, bringing the energy and sophistication of Buenos Aires to Washington. Our menu and primarily South American wine list, combined with our warm hospitality and welcoming décor, transport you far from the bustle of the District to the sweeping cattle ranches and grill-fired kitchens of Argentina.

    In spite of the fact that the main location is under repair, the hotel staff who were handling the restaurant during this time, were very gracious and the food was simply delicious!

    Food was very good but tables were pushed together, uneven and wobbly. For the price, there should have been tablecloths. Tables were like a diner. Our server, Javier, was wonderful.

    As you would expect for an Argentinian restaurant, beef is the star of the menu. And, it is top quality and very good (although not cooked to the requested doneness on first attempt). However, it was the grilled avocado that exceeded my expectations. Cooked simply with 1/2 a lemon it was sheer perfection. The potatoes in bacon reduction sauce was also a stand out. I chose the tasting menu and they were willing to listen to my preferences in designing the menu for me. Cocktails are another element that exceeded expectations.

    Meat so tender you can cut it with a fork! Javier provided superb service to our table and the meal was quite memorable. A nice mix of authenticity and modern presentation.

    I am always happy to get a chance to have Argentine food, and I was delighted by Rural Society—if a bit perplexed by its name. Both the beef and the other dishes were perfectly prepared. The staff made me feel truly welcome. When I am next in D.C., I'll go back!

    The prix frixe brunch option was phenomenal and more than enough food (but I still ate everything because it was just that good). Staff were very friendly and willing to split checks without a fuss.
