Estadio is the traditional Spanish tapas restaurant from Mark Kuller and chef Haidar Karoum, the team behind Proof and Doi Moi. The menu focuses on Northern Spanish cuisine, particularly classic dishes from the Basque and Catalan regions. Dishes come in three sizes: small bite "pintxos," traditional-sized tapas, and small entrees or “raciones.” There's also a good selection of Spanish cheeses and meats.

"If you ever want to convince brunch-haters that there’s more to the scene than tepid Benedict and flat mimosas, take them to this tapas house. We can’t think of a happier way to start a morning than with its toasted country bread with honey butter and Maldon salt, or some of the creamiest scrambled eggs we’ve tasted.

Le Diplomate is Philadelphia restaurateur Stephen Starr's first effort in DC. Nearly identical to its sibling Parc in Rittenhouse square, it features classical French brasserie cooking in setting that some describe as "more Paris than Paris." Each meal begins with excellent free bread which may tempt you to fill up before ordering. But you should resist the urge, because just about everything — from appetizers, through entrees, to dessert … is far better than you'll likely encounter at similar places in the "City of Lights." A very workable, mostly French, wine list, lively bar, and plenty of outdoor seating round out the package. Le Diplomate's weekend brunch is also among the best around.

This casual pizzeria from the owners of 2 Amy's is has a familiar menu of traditional pizzas and small plates.

In a neighborhood with more than enough new Italian restaurants, Ghibellina stands apart. It's versatile menu is good for just about any occasion. Some have noted inconsistencies in the pizza, but when it's "on," it may be the best in the city. Pasta, small plates, and charcuterie are also all excellent here. However, we note the recent loss of chef Jonathan Copeland, the backbone of the restaurant. It remains to be seen how things will fare in his absence.

Doi Moi can be a blast. But not always. The kitchen’s ground duck liver salad with toasted rice and ground chilies, eaten with cabbage leaf scoops, is no match for the torch song performed at Little Serow.
