Pre-show special pricing before the Kennedy Center and what a bargain. $40 for 3 courses and great selections. Had the Caesar Salad, Steak Frittes and Chocolate cake and all was delicious. Let the manager suggest the wine he did a great job

Lunch was fantastic. Seated immediately with friendly and attentive service. The tomato gazpacho with crab and avocado was refereshing and filling. Known for their mussels, the tomato-onion-garlic mussels with garlic fries was absolutely delicious. Well worth the price.
