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. Attention to detail is noticeable down to the butter assortment for the bread and the butchery precision. The tasting menu is the way to go, but if opting to order à la carte, you won't go wrong with the popular favorite Boudin Blanc.
Experience Marcel's as a dining destination prior to a night at the Kennedy Center. Before 6:30, a pre-theater package is offered for $65, which includes a 3-course meal and car service, definitely the most bang for your buck. You're paying a premium, but the taste and service is worth it.
