    Poste Brasserie is known for many things, from its Poste Roast and its outdoor garden with weekday happy hours, to its Sunday brunch with a full Bloody Mary bar. Read more

    The Bitches say: B+. It’s a nice spot for brunch, but we’d appreciate more consistency in the dishes and a bottomless deal. The service, truffle fries and truffle Benedict make it worth a visit. Read more

    The Chesapeake Eggs Benedict with crabcakes was great for brunch! The duckfat doughnuts, on the otherhand, were not all they were 'quacked-up' to be. Very crisp surface, dense and a heavy aftertaste.

    Poste's patio is one of the prettiest places for outdoor dining in DC — and its garden even provides for a lot of the dishes on this highly sustainable and locally sourced menu. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    the chorizo and mushroom tartines were so good we had to have encores :) they paired very well with the Francois Villard (Rhone, FR) 2012 Syrah and the Punto Final (Mendoza, AR) 2012 Malbec

    LOVE the patio! Tucked away in the middle of Penn Quarter/Chinatown, this place is nothing like its surroundings. It's an oasis. Great place to bring visitors/out-of-towners.

    Order the truffle fries and popcorn - so good! Also, note that there is essentially no restroom - you have to go through into the hotel and up to the next floor.

    One of my top 10 spots in the District. Skip the sparse charcuterie/cheese boards if your starting appetite is large. Best fall/winter dinner menus & perfect patio for summer cocktails!

    Dessert menu is absolutely amazing! Pastry Chef Casto Unson is talented and extremely good at complimenting flavors and textures. Definitely get dessert!
    Escargot, truffle fries, and pot au feu are just some of the locally sourced yet Parisian inspired dishes you’ll find at this bright and airy restaurant. Read more

    This is a great watering hole - lots of sun, great service and exceptional cocktails. Reminds me of the legendary, but now defunct, Post Bar in East Lansing.

    The patio is great for smallish groups, dates or after work crews. Be sure to ask about their infused vodkas and in-house infused vodkas.

    The brasserie-style fare and not to be missed truffled frites accompany a stellar cocktail program.

    An easygoing mix of fun and sophistication, of trendiness and simplicity. There might be better places to impress a client, but few will make you more comfortable.

    The chef loves tomoatoes so he’s using them in his 20 Bites tasting menu. Which will feature tomatoes in 20 different small plates, including a gazpacho & a tomato tartar. Read more

    Service out on the patio has gotten so much better with the new outdoor bar! Grab a glass of vino, some sliders & truffle fries.

    Delicious for brunch. We had the Eggs Hussarde (poached eggs on potato skins) and of course, house made doughnuts (filled). My husband and I shared it all and we loved it. Can't wait to go again.

    Not easy to access if you have a disability. The only ramp is 1 1/2 blocks from the valet parking and it was covered with snow and ice 5 days after the snow storm.Then, the door was locked.

    Whoever said $4 happy hour truffle fries at happy hour is a liar. But they are good, despite being $$

    Go to Poste, assuming it's a weekday between 4-7. If the weather's nice, sit in the courtyard. Order the $5 truffled frites. Have something to drink. Order the truffled frites again.

    If you book a week plus in advance, you can get a Poste Roast. They will roast a whole animal (your choice). Just saw a whole pig go by.
