Menu

Tips

  • Like many restaurants these days, the menu at Equinox follows the seasons. But chef Todd Gray was one of the early adopters of seasonal, local produce.
  • Chef Karen Nicolass savory chestnut flan with roasted porcini mushrooms, coffee syrup and coffee soil is one example of how she is shaking up this iconic DC power restaurant with creative touches.
  • One of Washington's top spots for power dining given its proximity to the White House. The Italian-influenced seasonal American menu is also beloved by the president. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Chef Todd Grays seasonal menu is perfect for an upscale dinner with clients near the Golden Triangle.
  • Nice presentation and service; Overpriced and food lacking strong flavors
  • Try the tasting menu.
  • Great seasonal ingredients - look for their venison during autumn and winter!
  • This is the first restaurant opened by CIA alumnus Todd Gray. Since then he's opened several other restaurants and is working on his first book.
  • What to get: Oysters on the half shell; poached-pear salad with a quail egg; shrimp and grits; any soup; rosemary-roasted bison with sweetbreads; the signature crabcake.
  • Equinox has been completely renovated and is finally back in business. The chef has even refined his cooking approach to better showcase his mid-Atlantic ingredients. Try the bleu cheese tater tots!
  • Order whatever you want off the menu but make sure to get a side of the amazing truffled mac n' cheese.
  • nice dinner, beautifully decorated plates but strange interior and even stranger waiters - they behaved in a funny (strange) way.
  • Executive lunch
  • Sunday Brunch and vegan desserts.
  • The Bitches say: B+ for a beautiful, plant-based vegan brunch. The vegan offerings are truly innovative and incorporate fresh seasonal vegetables and ingredients.
  • Sunday's vegan brunch is DELICIOUS!!!
  • Loved the vegan brunch
  • Vegan brunch on Sundays only.
  • nsanlar, servis, kapal bahe
  • Get smoked duck with cherry... wow delicious (medium well)
