Foursquare Tips

  • Incredible cooking. Some kinks to work out but this is a superlative new entry on the DC dining scene.
  • The Dabney, Jeremiah Langhorne's Washington debut, shows some of the most aggressive commitment to local sourcing and Mid-Atlantic cuisine in the region. As a result, the dishes change frequently.
  • Honestly, I could not agree on a favorite plate. Everything is extremely good. Service is great!
  • With no gas lines in the kitchen, Langhorne relies almost solely upon live fire. Snapper, rockfish, pork belly, quail, Camembert: You name it, and Langhorne can cook it over fiery embers.
  • Words can't describe how good this place is. Get the crab!
  • Snapper, rockfish, pork belly, quail, Camembert: You name it, and Jeremiah Langhorne can cook it over fiery embers. Langhorne combines these old-world techniques with a modern chefs outlook.
  • The baked duck egg with asparagus is delish
  • The kitchen is firing on all cylinders now: the Dabney is fantastic. Small plates are on the small side but each dish was exceptional. Standouts: pork belly, black bass, hearth roasted vegetables.
  • The menu changes, but get anything hearth-roasted. We had the hearth roasted vegetables and they were amazing! Service was great, dining room is cozy and it was a perfect special occasion dinner.
  • Very warm and cozy ambience and is great for a date. Every dish we had was interesting and delicious. Try to sit near the open kitchen.
  • Enter this place from the back in Blagden Alley. Has a small but quality local beer selection. I wouldn't recommend it for vegetarians.
  • The nicest staff. Everyone is so friendly, everyone is always smiling. I felt very welcomed.
  • Wonderful addition to Historic Shaw and unique dining experience. All tables overlook the kitchen and chefs.The biscuit was unreal and we loved our porkey fish and rib eye. Menu changes daily.
  • The food is amazing and the space is really cool. While the staff was polite, the service was slow. We were seated about 20 min after our reservation time and received our food 45 min after ordering.
  • Awesome mezcal cocktail. Definitely want to go back for dinner.
