To enhance your experience and provide additional networking opportunities, we have brought back the Dine Arounds. Following the Capitol Hill Reception on Monday, we have made reservations at several of Washington's best restaurants within walking distance of the conference hotel. Go to the registration desk at the conference to sign up for a dinner and take advantage of these additional opportunities to network and enjoy all that Washington, D.C., has to offer.
Art & Soul: Enjoy this chic setting to meet and connect while enjoying "food for the soul." With celebrated two-time James Beard-Award winning Chef Art Smith as chef/owner, this 221-seat dining destination serves modern, regional cuisine with southern accents. Chef Smith is well known for being Oprah Winfrey's long-time personal chef and has made several television appearances, including Top Chef DC and Top Chef Masters, TLC's BBQ Pitmasters and Iron Chef America. Signature dishes include: shrimp and grits with Anson Mills cheddar grits, crispy bacon and chow-chow; spice rubbed ahi tuna with fried green tomatoes and sour pickle relish; the house cured salmon hoecake, a cornmeal flatbread served with dill creme fraiche and caper berries; rockfish served with andouille sausage-seafood gumbo and dirty rice and Art's famous fried chicken.
Bistro Bis: Designed by award-winning architects Adamstein and Demetriou, this modern version of a French bistro is where Capitol Hill dines. From the zinc bar with its tall columns and fabulous fixtures to the tiered dining area with soft patterned tile floor, Bis is where diners want to be. The restaurant flows to a view of the busy kitchen with its magnificent glass wall. Its regular guests include Senators, Congressmen, celebrities and powerbrokers looking to dine in the ambiance and luxury of one of Washington’s most popular restaurants.
Charlie Palmer Steak: Under the direction of Executive Chef Matt Hill, the menu stars the best American artisan beef cuts like an aged Angus Rib-eye "Cowboy" steak as well as updated seafood classics such as the Iced Shellfish Platter of lobster, shrimp, king crab, and oysters. Underscoring the patriotic menu, Palmer's innovative wine cube - which appears to be floating on water - features 3,500 bottles of exclusively American wine featuring over 600 selections.
Thunder Grill: Incorporating towering, adobe-like wall fragments at the entry hall of Union Station, intricate mosaic surfaces of turquoise glass, and a menu reflecting the many cultures that have influenced the region, Thunder Grill is a visual and culinary celebration of the American Southwest.
