The owner of this quirky club and restaurant named after soul singer Marvin Gaye is Eric Hilton, a D.C. local who became a national celebrity as half of the DJ supergroup Thievery Corporation. Inspired by Gaye's sojourn to Belgium in the 1980s, the menu combines soul food with traditional French classics—think chicken and waffles and pork chop with a white bean cassoulet. The food is so good it'll bust your belt. After dinner, sample a Belgian beer and shake your booty
on the upstairs dance floor. At Sunday brunch, try the stellar shrimp and grits or a simple waffle with fruit.
