  • 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!

  • 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.

  • The nicest staff. Everyone is so friendly, everyone is always smiling. I felt very welcomed.
