Fodor's Review

One of the most venerable restaurants in the city is located adjacent to the hotel that once helped coin the phrase "lobbyist" for its lively ground-floor social scene. The kitchen's walls are covered with photos of politicians and other notables who have come here for the food and the attentive service. Headlining the menu are new American standards such as braised lamb shank, roasted duck breast, and crab cakes. Lunch includes a particularly strong dessert trio, led by bead pudding.
