The Food Scene

When you visit the nation's capital, you’ll experience a food scene as colorful and eclectic as America itself. That means you can expect each meal at every restaurant to be different. From crave-worthy dishes served by celebrity chefs to world-famous chili-smothered half-smokes served at a diner, DC’s local flavor has one thing in common: it’s all delicious.

At the Washington Court Hotel 

Bistro 525 is an eclectic Capitol Hill restaurant that specializes in seasonally-driven, Mid-Atlantic dining led by renowned Chef Mario Raymond. A Chesapeake native, Chef Raymond specializes in fresh American cooking (with a few nods to his Italian roots), using products that are grown, farmed and harvested right here in the DMV.
