Hotel restaurants are starting to get with the times.
In recent memory they were places for overpriced wine and pale imitations of current culinary fashion — if you were lucky. But now they’re starting to become destinations in their own right. Locals report that Foggy Bottom’s Jardenea, located in the Melrose Georgetown Hotel, is New American dining at its finest.
Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Jardenea serves rich, comforting, gimme-more classics like crab bisque, chicken and biscuits, and shrimp and grits, made with skill and style. Everything is farm-fresh and locally sourced — the proof is in a legion of satisfied diners.
Looking for an innovative happy hour spot? Jardenea’s a great option. Look out for the 5-5-5 special this fall: $5 appetizers, $5 drinks, and $5 off dinner. So grab a seat on a cushy couch, order a drink and have a great night near Residences on the Avenue.
Jardenea is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
