    fab host-"boy" garcon is now at Fig&Olive, if you miss bright-ness, vibrant service with That Smile, he's downtown. Otherwise Kimpton always strived for best in local, boutique style. Miss former mgt.

    Try chef's grandmother's recipe, Kaisen Gyoza (sea bass and scallop). You won't be disappointed!

    I absolutely loved the mushrooms and the soft tofu in the miso soup. Sake (Salmon) and White Tuna Nigiri were spectacular! The pork belly rice bowl was delicious and filling as well.

    The Spicy Miso Ramen is a perfect lunch on a cold day.

    The Peas & Sprouts is a great meal starter, a warm bowl packed with crispy brussels sprouts and fresh chickpeas topped with a shiso-mustard vinaigrette and garlic chips.

    Price fixe lunch pretty great. Pork belly bowl and kale salad both made for a filling but light meal.

    Brussel sprouts, salmon skewer, and steak skewers were excellent. Skip bland gyoza. Cod was standard. Duck and chicken thigh skewer okay. Try short rib next time!

    Zentan has their own take on pho which they make with oxtail. It's a but fancier and smaller than your typical pho joint but delicious nonetheless!

    Order the Sake Braised Short Ribs - glazed root vegetables, kabocha squash puree, beef jus. The ribs are tender and compliment the other flavors.

    Okay; overpriced, but good sushi. Cavernous main room belies its hotel association. Weird disconnects (bone-in duck for lettuce wraps?) makes menu feel thrown together; but great service.

    For lunch, get the delicious Pork Belly Bowl, it's made with braised pork belly, seasonal mushrooms, semi-poached egg and matsuda rice.

    Nguyen’s Reuben sandwich swaps duck (“my favorite protein,” says the chef) and kimchi for corned beef and sauerkraut. Sweetly seasoned duck + the fiery slaw mixes pleasure with pain. Hotheads rejoice. Read more

    what happened? Used to be a great restaurant. Now Kimpton has taken over and the menu, attitude and service leave a lot to be desired. Used to eat here on each visit to DC but won't be coming back.

    It's pretty awesome. For a nice private time, have them seat you in back room in one of the booths. Very nice.

    The Sake Garden cocktail is great. Be careful as you can easily drink several before you know it! The five-spice chocolate soufflé dessert is delicious. Rich but complex flavor.

    They have different hours than what's on their website because it's "winter." annoying and inconvenient.

    Get the Asian coleslaw with 20 ingredients and really savor every bite. Different textures and tastes really make this an amazing dish to eat as every bite is unique in some way.

    Jarad at the bar is great! If you just have 2 or less people, sitting at the bar is great. Salmon lover, firecracker, brick, and Cantonese steak are great. I would skip the crudo (too much vinegar)
