Be sure to make reservations because foodies flock here for a taste of Chef William Morris's award-winning modern American menu. This upscale establishment puts an emphasis on the casual with its exposed brick walls, ceiling beams, and gas lamps. Morris favors locally sourced, sustainable ingredients, though quality trumps local here so you may find an Alaskan halibut on this Mid-Atlantic menu alongside a braised short ribs and caramelized onion crespelle. Vermilion
is also one of the area's favorite weekend brunch spots. Tuesday and Wednesday evenings bring live music to the first-floor lounge.
