24th and M streets N.W.

Tel: 202 419 6755's insider take:

Completely revamped by restaurant design guru Tony Chi in summer 2006 this restaurant at the Park Hyatt, once a prix fixe, white-linen affair, now sports a rustic open kitchen with a wood-burning oven and Shaker-style decor. Chef Brian McBride is still here, cooking a seasonal, locally sourced menu of regional American cuisine. He wood-fires steaks, wraps monkfish with prosciutto, and braises house-made bratwurst alongside beer and white-wine sauerkraut. For dessert, there's flambéed bourbon chocolate cake, spiced mandarin compote, and hand-cranked seasonal fruit ice cream.
