Fine Dining in DC
For a special occasion with that special someone, Marcel's by Chef Robert Wiedmaier is the finest of upscale restaurants in Washington D.C. The old school atmosphere with suited servers is balanced by modern beautifully plated French and Belgian inspired cuisine. Detail to flavor is noticeable down to the butter assortment for the bread and butchery precision. The tasting menu is the way to go but if opting to order a la carte, the Boudin Blanc is a popular favorite. The best way to experience Marcel's is as a dining destination prior to a night at the Kennedy Center. Before 6:30pm, a pre-theater package is offered for $65 that includes a 3-course meal and car service. That is definitely the most bang for your buck when four to seven courses can cost between $85 and $145 without drinks. You're paying a premium, but the taste and service is worth it.
