Palena Cafe

If you are near the Cleveland Park stop on the DC metro red line, do yourself a favor and stop at Palena Cafe. It is astounding.
The Cafe is the front section of a four-star, fine-dining restaurant. It has a separate menu, but the food is outstanding. Also, the service was superb.

  1. Absolutely! Just went to the four star part for my birthday a few months ago and I daresay it's the best restaurant in Washington. We had a drink at the bar first in the cafe and aim to go back for dinner.

      I really thought nothing in the DC area could get better than Palena, and it's still very excellent, but get ye to Eve in the tasting room and then let's talk about what's the best in the DC area :)
