Washington DC, US

Sip a sophisticated cocktail beside the open fire before sinking into a dusky velvet sofa in the minimal dining room, which is always humming with DC’s well-heeled bon vivants. The menus of Eric Ziebold, formerly of Thomas Keller’s lauded The French Laundry and Per Se, are laced with nostalgia. Spaghetti of squid ceviche, yellow chives, Italian parsley and garlic-infused olive oil harks back to sunny summers in Italy, while boudin blanc with chestnut purée, poached pear and Darden ham broth demonstrate his considerable technical ability. Métier, Ziebold’s 11-table venue offering a more creative seven-course tasting menu, is located in the same building.
