    Go here before a show at the Kennedy Center and treat yourself to a great meal and outstanding service. After the show, go back for the piano bar a single-malt. The best!

    Fancy French restaurant suspension: Marcel's - Duck at 49 degrees, cross contamination control, no one certified food safety. Declined to explain or show us improvements. Passed city reinspection.

    The foie gras is just silly good. Served with house-made toasted brioche, I could eat that all day and night.

    ALWAYS get the pan-seared foie gras (if available). Chef Wiedmaier is absolutely amazing.
