1330 Maryland Avenue S.W.
Washington , D.C.
Tel: 202 787 6006's insider take:

Chef Eric Ziebold previously worked at D.C.'s Vidalia (1990 M St. N.W.; 202-659-1990;, but it was the eight years under Thomas Keller at the French Laundry in California's Napa Valley that truly informed his cooking style. In an elegant dining room at the Mandarin Oriental with 20-foot ceilings and modern appointments, Ziebold serves an outstanding modern American menu based on pristine ingredients and inspired combinations. Foie gras risotto comes with a counterpoint of astringent roasted apple; pork sausage is accompanied by Perigord truffles, Italian pistachios, and a ragout of French green lentils; Chatham Bay cod is paired with celery root puree, little onions, and a whole-grain mustard sauce. For dessert, there's a chocolate-chip-cookie-dough soufflé with chocolate-milk ice cream.

Dinner only; closed Sundays and Mondays.
