The city’s oldest hotel has transformed a historic dining room into the J&G Steakhouse, where classic cuts are given a modern makeover with Michelin-star moxie. Infusing timeless cuisine with contemporary design, we approve this menu: Executive Chef Philippe Reininger’s prime steaks and global selection of fresh fish from the blue seas are complemented by produce from independent local organic farms, creating a truly multi-partisan experience where anyone can savor these party favors with a choice of creative side dishes and unique sauces. Although reinvented by Chef Reininger to exude the elegance of worldly travels dominated by a discerning palate, read our lips: we pledge allegiance to the authenticity of a fine American steakhouse. Sip from a comprehensive selection of fine wines specializing in Californian and French reds from the Wine Bar to complement this monumental meal, then détente over seasonal desserts.
Everyone’s a high-flier in the Beaux-Arts-styled dining room, where soaring 24-feet ceilings with tall double-arched windows and mirrors showcase sweeping views of the city, the White House Gardens and Washington Monument. Designed by the ambassador of ambience Dianna Wong, host with the most at a table with macassar ebony accents and red and ivory upholstery, or cozy up in banquettes with luscious cognac fabrics and leather seats, framed by iridescent black cherry drapes. All around, ceiling and wall murals adorned with abstract interpretations of cherry blossoms and coins by San Francisco artist Julie Chang playfully cross the line between traditional restraint and modern sensuality. Or take steak-gate inside to two private rooms seating 10 and 15 guests, where drinks are prepared with flair under hand-blown glass chandeliers.
For once in the capital city, you don’t have to stick with one decision—classic and sleek, convention and evolution, have it all.
