Here are Pure Entertainment Group’s most favorite restaurants in Washington DC (in no order):

KOMI Restaurant
Komi of co-owner Anne Marler and Chef-owner Johnny Monis is a very small and intimate restaurant, however, it is a nationally known gastronomic destination. The restaurant serves a set multi-course dinner for $135(without wine), beginning with a series of mezzethakia – small, light dishes – and progressing to heartier flavors, including pasta and a family-style entrée, followed by desserts. The meal itself is the night’s worth of entertainment-and romance. We LOVE IT.

Adour at The St. Regis Washington, DC
Adour is named after the river in southwest France near where fame French chef/restaurateur Alain Ducasse was born. As soon you enter this modern restaurant, you will know right away that the cuisine will be top-notch and that it will feature quality ingredients such as caviar, black truffle, foie gras. Guests will enjoy a contemporary French American cuisine designed with wine in mind. So, sit back and enjoy the culinary adventure at Adour.

The Inn at Little Washington
Just an hour’s drive from Washington DC, this sumptuous hideaway, nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains is a world-renowned destination for connoisseurs. This lovely Relais & Châteaux hotel and restaurant also spotlights chef Patrick O’Connell’s inspired American cuisine who offers A la Carte menu and a very elaborated tasting menu (think of Black Truffle Dusted Popcorn, Nantucket Bay Scallop with Shishito Peppers, Fricassée of Maine Lobster) with wine pairing. And for wine, you have a choice of more than 14,000 award winning bottles from the wine cellar.

Michel Richard Citronelle
Citronelle the internationally acclaimed realm of French chef Michel Richard, that is regarded as “one of the world’s most exciting restaurants,” by Condé Nast Traveler magazine offers top-notch gourmet experience to true connoisseur. Located in the Latham Hotel, some of the dishes include butter-poached lobster, roasted duck, pear-chocolate tart. The President Barack Obama and his first lady Michelle dined there on their first date night. This is a winning restaurant if you’re into a festive celebration!

Marcel’s Restaurant
Marcel’s Restaurant of chef Robert Wiedmaier offers exceptional French-Belgian cuisine in a very cute and romantic setting. In terms of food, Marcel’s menu changes seasonally. You can choose between a 4, 5, 6 or 7-course tasting menu meal where some the items include a tartare of filet mignon, gratin of mussels with tomato fondue, filet of loup de mer with sautéed baby spinach, breast of Pheasant wih foie gras mousseline. Don’t skip the desserts because they are just delicious and the memory is simply grand!

CityZen at Mandarin Oriental Hotel
Possibly one of Washington’s best-kept secrets, CityZen located at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is where the power, the money and the fine dining connoisseurs converge when it’s time to mix business with pleasure. Lead by chef Eric Ziebold, who was at The French Laundry for 8 years prior the opening of CityZen restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental, the menu comes in three parts: a regular six-course tasting menu, a six-course vegetarian tasting menu, and the prix-fixe three-course dinner menu. Reservations are highly recommended.

Minibar by José Andrés
Minibar by josé andrés is a study in avant-garde cooking where 27 to 30 bite-sized courses are handed to guests. Their tasting menu, which focuses on molecular gastronomy, provides one of the most exciting dining experiences. Example include five spice figs, Cotton candy eel, bagel and lox, Beet “Tumbleweed”, Olive oil “Bon-Bon”, “Sun Dried” Tomato Salad, “Fizzy” Ball. There are only 6 seats and two seating’s five nights a week (it’s basically a restaurant within another restaurant Cafe Atlantico). Reservations are very hard to get; it requires persistence and a bit of luck!

The Source
Headlined by Master Chef Wolfgang Puck, The Source is a fine dining restaurant with two distinct dining experiences as well as a private room located on the lower level that seats up to 40 guests. The cuisine is described as “modern American with Asian influences.” As for some dishes, you will find spicy tuna tartare with sesame-miso cone, perfectly grilled lamb chops set in a cilantro-mint sauce and served alongside soft pieces of Japanese eggplant, American Kobe beef short ribs, Szechuan Filet “Au poivre”. A delight!

Vidalia Restaurant
Chef Jeffrey Buben describes Vidalia’s cuisine as original American with a subtle Southern influence. Indeed, favorite dishes include the delicate crab-cakes of almost pure lump crabmeat, shrimp and grits, veal sweetbreads, lemon chess pie. It’s an elegant restaurant with great food, superior ingredients and a fantastic price wether you pair it with wine or not. Most people say Vidalia is to die for and I agree; you’ll understand why when you dine there.

Obelisk Restaurant
Obelisk is an upscale Italian restaurant hidden in Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington DC. The restaurant is a culinary journey exploring flavors of seasonal Italian cooking with elegance; indeed Obelisk offers authentic dishes in a very small and intimate cozy setting. In terms of food, Obelisk is prix-fixe-only, and it’s not cheap; the five-courses menu meal starts with an assortment of small delicious appetizers (to share if you wish) then continues with the first and second entrees, the cheese platter and finish with the dessert. We definitely recommend this Italian place!

If you are traveling to Washington DC for business or pleasure, we highly recommend you stop at one of these fine dining restaurants in the city. Contact your luxury concierge Pure Conciergerie to arrange your bespoke travel package to Washington DC or to book a dinner at one of these restaurants.
