Charlie Palmer’s in Washington D.C .- A very chic DC culinary experience!

Charlie Palmer Steak DC restaurant in Washington D.C. is located very close to the Capitol building. The restaurant is famously known for aged Angus rib-eye steak and locally sourced seafood. Something you may not know, the views of the Capitol from the restaurant’s private event rooftop terrace are probably the best views of the Capitol building anywhere.

When walking into the restaurant, the decor is the first thing to grab your attention. The stylish, contemporary design delights and creates the ambiance for an upscale culinary experience.

Greeted by employees that have worked here for years, you realize that this is a restaurant that encourages loyalty. The customers and the employees share a familiarity that is quite special!

Executive Chef Dennis – Wonderful to have the pleasure of meeting such a talented and gifted Chef!

I had the pleasure of meeting Executive Chef Michael Dennis. To my surprise, he not only came out to our table, but sat with us and introduced himself. He proudly told us about his menu and what inspiration him while creating it. One of the lunch entrees, which was designed from his heart, is the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with citrus slaw, tomato, and cajun remoulade – a recipe that honors his mother’s cooking.

My friend loves a good salmon dish, so she ordered the citrus basted king salmon with bulger wheat tabbouleh, greek yogurt, tzatziki, and piquillo pepper. This was an amazing dish, and if you enjoy salmon, it is a dish that mustbe ordered.

One of the many specialties that this restaurant features is locally sourced seafood dishes. Learning this, I simply had to order the seafood platter that featured the Chesapeake Bay oysters and soft shell crab. The entire platter was fantastic and was a wonderful and special treat.

Within the restaurant, I found that the tables near the expansive windows were, in my opinion, the best location for a meal. I enjoyed the light and the ability to appreciate the views from the table.

Without a doubt (I had the opportunity to experience this) the best views from a restaurant near the Capitol.
