The doorman greets you as a most welcome guest. When I asked about parking, he told me with a smile he can provide valet parking. When I asked the cost, he very kindly said it would be $20 which for DC is a decent value....More

My daughter turns 3 y.o. in November, and we'll be travelling those days... is this place ok for a small child? There will be just she, her grandma and me, so we'd like to have just a small dinner to celebrate. Still, I would like to pre-order a small cake or anything special for her to blow candles.
