    Vegan brunch! Go back for seconds of the string beans tossed with red pepper, toasted cashews and fragrant Thai basil, as well as a comforting squash soup made with almond milk and pecan bits. Read more

    Phenomenal food. Every course was as good as or better than the previous. The arugula pasta is delish, especially for those on gluten-free diets.

    Don't be fooled by the unassuming entrance. Sit in the atrium, and enjoy a Bordeaux.

    What to get: Oysters on the half shell; poached-pear salad with a quail egg; shrimp and grits; any soup; rosemary-roasted bison with sweetbreads; the signature crabcake.

    Like many restaurants these days, the menu at Equinox follows the seasons. But chef Todd Gray was one of the early adopters of seasonal, local produce.

    One of Washington's top spots for power dining given its proximity to the White House. The Italian-influenced seasonal American menu is also beloved by the president. [Eater 38 Member] Read more
