My wife and I were visiting DC to see U2 at the Capital Centre and I was looking for a restaurant nearby. I found Graffiato online, read the reviews, looked at the menu, and got a reservation. We had a great experience. Our server, Fran was a sweet, very good ambassador for Graffiato and she did a great job on her recommendations. My rigatoni was delicious. We will go back.

Outstanding service, particularly the bartender(s). The a/c didn't seem to be working well, though, and it was hot. The head bartender, Mehdi, is a gem and quite the mixologist. Reservations were adjusted for my group size. I can't say enough about the excellent personal care from the staff. MoreOpenTable Diner -

Chef Candace Richardson is offering a preview of her new catering concept and restaurant beginning July of 2018 in a Pop-Up Series. Pop-Up Restaurants originally began as supper clubs or speakeasies during the prohibition era. Just as their name implies, they would appear in unexpected places for a limited amount of time, where guests had “to be in the know to patronize.
A DMV transplant, Chef Richardson shares her Garden State vision for the future of American Cuisine with subtle southern influences by lauding the farm to table mantra, “eat local, fresh and seasonally inspired!” The Haute Table is an interactive 6-course tasting menu and each course is complemented with a perfectly balanced craft cocktail, beer, & wine pairing. Our guests will enjoy an exploration of flavors while mingling with others. From the moment guests arrive to their last spoonful of dessert, the “Haute Experience” is created with heartfelt intention and a deep appreciation for locally-sourced ingredients.

Discover Washington, D.C.
An international city with the food chops to show for it, Washington D.C. is brimming with new restaurants, coffee houses and spirited bars. And, while tablecloth dining has it’s place here (diplomats gotta eat), so does the casual yet delicious lunch spot (interns gotta eat, too). Near the Capitol, historic eateries and classic menus are favored by many. Excellent Filipino food can be found in Columbia Heights. Near Georgetown, upscale bistros and farm-to-table spots are the order of the day, and Adams Morgan is home to many international restaurants and locally owned cafes.
