701 Restaurant

Located in Washington, D.C.’s hip Penn Quarter, 701 Restaurant opened in the nation’s capital in December 1990. Owner Ashok Bajaj tapped James Beard Foundation’s award-nominated restaurant designer Martin Vahtra of Projects Design Associates of New York to update 701 Restaurant’s design scheme in August 2015. The plush interior features dramatic colors and striking art, with new private dining rooms. A great place to meet for cocktails, lunch or dinner, one will want to visit Thursday-Sunday evenings for the live jazz. Executive Chef Benjamin Lambert features a farm-fresh menu with a three-course prix fixe lunch for $28 a person Monday through Friday. Happy Hour is available at the bar/lounge Monday through Friday, from 3 PM to 7 PM and includes $7 featured wines. 701 Restaurant also showcases an American caviar sampler paired with a glass of Champagne that is the perfect splurge for $45. Tom Sietsema included 701 Restaurant in The Washington Post magazine feature titled “Dedicate Yourself to Being a Better Diner in 2014” and the restaurant was also nominated for “Power Spot of the Year” by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington in March 2012 and has been named among Washingtonian magazine’s list of the “100 Very Best Restaurants.”
