Editorial reviews from the web (5)

The folks in the kitchen "can just plain cook", using "locally sourced" ingredients in "creative" ways in the "outstanding" New American dishes that grace the tables at chef/co-owner Todd Gray's "pricey" fine-dining spot steps from the White House; "polished" service is "worthy of that special night" out but "also establishment enough for business lunches", when one spots famous faces in the...

Equinox Restaurant Review

Chef-owner Todd Gray displays culinary momentum as this regional-centric restaurant adds more specialty dinners and continues its seasonal menu, one that Gray evolves with differing takes on local ingredients. Gray adds a new twist to at least one seafood dish: curing the Maine diver scallops at the table on Himalayan salt slabs. Using local lamb, he serves it three ways and dubs it...

Virginia-born chef-owner Todd Gray looks to area purveyors for hard-to-find heirloom and local foodstuffs at his low-key American eatery. The furnishings and the food are simple and elegant, rebounding nicely following a 2009 fire that destroyed part of the kitchen. The fresh ingredients speak for themselves: grilled lamb rib eye with a puree of local Blue Ridge chestnuts, roasted black bass...

A fire that temporarily closed Equinox in 2010 also gave the restaurant the opportunity to renovate, so now the main dining room feels warmer and more open and the bar is updated with granite counters, translucent shelving, and a glass back bar. Diners have flocked back, knowing they can expect the same creatively delicious American food. You'll eat all your vegetables here, because as much...

Miss Congeniality of the capital's elite, award-winning dining options. Zero preservatives, zero pretense. Beatific place settings of pure linen, silver. White gossamer draped under slanted glass roof. Good-humored chef strives to make "Mid-Atlantic" the new Burgundian or Alsatian. Miasmic menu reads like a zodiac of Washington's four seasons: crab cakes arrive with the tide, venison for the...

Great food and awesome service. Excellent vegan options

Average Rating

Fantastic option for both the vegan and omnivore eaters in our party. The Thanksgiving menu had multiple options in each courses for all diners.

Average Rating

The food was passable but nothing memorable and much too expensive. Ditto the specialty cocktail, which was mostly ice.

Average Rating

Nice to have rested our digestive systems after all the big meals in DC. Vegan friendly and reasonably replenished buffet. We added an extra side order of eggplant chips. Not bad but a bit too oily and saltish. Food quality was good, but it could...

Second visit to the Sunday Vegan Brunch and was even more pleased with the delicious food and selections. An avowed carnivore, I took my wife and vegan daughter and we were all thrilled by the taste of all of the food. There is something for everyone and you will LOVE the buffet. While not ready to give up meat, I will be back for their brunch and definitely will try out their regular fare. ...
