Cafe Riggs

Inspired by the grand brasseries of Europe, Café Riggs offers historic grace married with contemporary cuisine.

Recently named one of the "Top 5 Best Hotel Restaurants in the World by Conde Nast Traveler", patrons are welcomed into the airy setting to enjoy a casual drink or celebratory meal against the backdrop of the space’s ornate ceiling and original Corinthian columns.

Executive Chef Patrick Curran, previously of David Chang’s Momofuku D.C., reimagines familiar and comforting dishes through a modern lens, with a specific focus on utilizing sustainable products. Designed by Jacu Strauss, the bright and airy space features a variety of custom furniture pieces, artworks, and mirrors nestled amongst the building’s original architectural features.

Special event space can be found in Café Riggs, which is home to a semi-private dining room and a private dining room for seated dinners and reception-style events up to 20, as well as a communal table for receptions up to 45 in the main dining room.

Cafe Riggs is currently open for dinner 7 days a week, beginning from 5:30pm grab and go breakfast from 7am to 11am, Weekend Brunch from 10am-3pm and Delivery and Carryout.
