“French dining in Washington DC”
Le Diplomate pays homage to French café culture by providing a comfortable place for everything from a cappuccino and croissant on a lazy weekend afternoon at brunch to a celebratory dinner out with friends or just a drink and dessert at the close of an evening.
The extensive menu features a variety of classic favorites including Onion Soup Gratinée, Steak Frites and Escargots as well as daily plats such as Bouillabaisse and Entrecôte de Boeuf. Towering plateaus of oysters, clams, shrimp cocktail and lobster are the perfect start to a meal or a main course unto itself. The crusty baguettes are made in-house and are the ideal accompaniment to a selection of regional French cheeses.
A thoughtfully curated wine list and specialty cocktail program complete the experience. The stylish dining room exudes a welcoming vibe and in warmer weather, enjoy dining “en plein air” in the stunning outdoor cafe where you can take in the bustling energy of DC while sipping the perfect kir royale.
Philadelphia restaurateur Stephen Starr has taken the D.C. restaurant scene by storm with this picture-perfect French bistro, complete with lazy sidewalk seating, towering seafood plateaux and a bar that looks plucked straight out of Montmartre.
