French restaurants

The Modern has a new chef from The NoMad. The menu has changed and now seems more American than French.

Best Theatre District Restaurants

I went to Danji a bit before 6:00 pm recently and immediately got a seat at the bar where they serve the full menu. I went to Ippudo Westside at 6:45 a few weeks ago and the wait was only 15-20 minutes. It's a large space with a second floor.

The waits at Ippudo and Danji are not long at all for pretheater meals at 6:00 pm. About 15 minutes in my experience.

Jean Georges and Le Bernardin for Lunch

The service in the lounge is every bit as good as the service in the dining room. If this is your first time at Le Bernardin I would suggest skipping the City Harvest menu and ordering from the regular menu instead so that you can sample some of the restaurant's signature dishes as mentioned in the New York Times reviews.

What can't I get in DC?

I had a great Indian dinner at Rasika in DC but maybe there are few good Austrian restaurants there.

Cookshop or Red Cat?

I prefer Cookshop but both are fine choices in the neighborhood. Also look into:

Coasts, have you tried Mission Cantina? The food even better than Empellon Taqueria which I also like a lot.
