Ate here for dinner during a conference stay. The restaurant is very romantic, with low lighting, candles, and comfortable seating. I ordered the lentil, potato & spring vegetable empanada with tomatillo, cilantro chutney, and the spicy collard greens as a side. The empanadas (3 large...More

Excellent breakfasts, but pricey because of the quality. You will get a great breakfast here, but be prepared to pay extra for it. It is a fair value if you compare cost to quality. I had the salmon omelette, my spouse had chicken and waffles,...More

Just steps away from the U.S. Capitol, Art and Soul boasts an atmosphere of relaxed elegance and true southern hospitality. The Capitol Hill restaurant offers guests a seasonal and regionally inspired menu highlighting simple, honest food from local farms. The result of this approach is food that is straightforward and pays tribute to chefs Art Smith and Wes Morton’s southern roots and decades of Southern cooking. Chef Wes grew up in the kitchen, and his love for cooking can be traced back to Abeville, La., where every Sunday the family would gather for a lunch of southern food. Art and Soul carries out that tradition of sharing meals and bringing people together around the table.
