  • The Obamas celebrated Valentine's Day 2013 at Jose Andres' Penn Quarter restaurant, which left Washington Post restaurant critic Tom Sietsema unimpressed in December 2012.
  • With only six bar seats available for dining, this restaurant within arestaurant is arguably the country's toughest reservation to score.
  • If you want a taste of tomorrow today, reserve a seat at this futuristic lounge adjoining Minibar, the daring dinner theater from Spanish ambassador Jose Andres.
  • The restaurant address is incorrect. It is on The corner of E Street NW and 9th St. And, Daniel the maitre d is great! ;)
  • Bill Addison was "hooked by a dish called 'Ibrico tendon,' where noodles fashioned from Ibrico ham consomm and Japanse kuzu root mimicked the translucent chewiness of beef ligament."
  • It is hard to go wrong here. Buffalo chicken skin was great. Lobster roll, banh mi & grilled cheese on point. Every cocktail delicious and great service!
  • Martinez! Oh, no words!
  • Amazing drinks, knowledgable bartenders, and great service. Get the lobster roll - hands down most amazing thing. Oysters and grilled cheese are on point.
  • Obama's favorite chef, Jose Andres, feeds the plebes at his Penn Quarter restaurant. Since it takes ages to get a reservation, we hope you booked yours last year.
  • Reservations are hard to come by at this six-customer, two-chef restaurant. Call exactly at 10am (not 10:05) one month ahead for a reservation.
  • Carlie is the best bartender!
  • Try the (constant) gardener
  • Try the foie Gras waffle and grilled cheese next time. Bahmi slider was ok. Liked uni panini and chimichirrones. Sparkling water costs $7! Excellent drinks
  • Great service and amazing cocktails!
  • The hot buttered rum on a cool evening makes tastes so right.
  • Unpredictable hours...
  • Mint & ice !
  • If youre looking for something more daring than Jos Andrss tapas restaurant Jaleo, head to nearby Minibar, where one-bite molecular concoctions take center stage.
  • When was the last time you picked up a mezcal-spiked cocktail and ate it like a snowball? Jos Andrss 27-course menu kicks off with just that and follows up with other mind-bending surprises.
  • Kevin Sbraga loves this place! -Kevin Sbraga, Top Chef
