This inviting restaurant has 11 large windows that overlook nearby Rock Creek Park. The sophisticated contemporary cooking has changed hands multiple times in recent years, so frequently that the owners now describe it as "a showcase for young, creative chefs," but all blend bold flavors into the traditional American dishes. Cod takes pan-Asian form with miso and black rice, while homemade fettuccine gets the carbonara treatment with a slow-cooked egg and bacon. Desserts
tend towards the traditionally American, while the chic bar gets its own array of casual small plates.
