Fodor's Expert Review Art and Soul
Best known as Oprah's longtime personal chef, Art Smith is now serving the Washingtonian crowd at this funky Southern-fried spot, located in the Liaison Capitol Hill. Down-home cravings get an upscale twist in a chic kitchen where a three-course, $25 "power lunch" draws movers and shakers, but the bacon cornbread still bakes in a can. The bar makes no bones about its fancy provenance, offering few wines by the glass below $13 and a high-end bubbly refresher with the Congress-ready moniker "Roll Call."
