Located in the United Brotherhood of Carpenters headquarters off the wide, open expanse of the National Mall, Charlie Palmer Steak DC is dedicated to another fine master craft: big, bold American food. Under the direction of Executive Chef Matt Hill, the menu stars the best American artisan beef cuts like an aged Angus Rib-eye "Cowboy" steak as well as updated seafood classics such as the Iced Shellfish Platter of lobster, shrimp, king crab, and oysters. Underscoring the patriotic menu, Palmer's innovative wine cube—which appears to be floating on water—features 3,500 bottles of exclusively American wine featuring over 600 selections.
Charlie Palmer Steak DC moves the political power meetings out of the back room and into private dining spaces, sleek enclaves of dark wood where gathering around the table gets things done in the best possible way. In addition, the rooftop terrace, which can accommodate 400 guests, possesses the city's most impressive view of the Capitol.
