Reopened in 2013 under the direction of executive chef Anthony Chittum, this venue dates back to the days of the Civil War when it was used as stables for its cavalry officer owner. Today, the original carriageway hosts the bar and year-round dining area and features a cozy courtyard complete with grapevines and wisteria. Focusing on Mediterranean inspired mezze driven dishes, a winter entrée menu recently featured oak grilled yellowfin tuna, roasted chestnut cappellacci and trumpet mushroom carbonara. As a way to say goodbye to the weekend, check out their brunch offerings such as lemon ricotta pancakes, olive oil fried eggs and roasted pepper lumache. METRO: Dupont Circle
