Le Diplomate is an acclaimed French restaurant located in DC's neighborhood of Logan Circle. The exterior imitates a classic Parisian cafe while the inside, split into three different dining rooms + bar, is crowded with crimson booths and rattan chairs.
Their wine catalogue is extensive, and their food list does not disappoint. If you still have room for dessert, I definitely recommend you take up the offer. I went with the Milk Chocolate Pot de Crème, which was probably the best decision of my life. Added bonus: apparently the Vice President also enjoys a meal from Le Diplomate every now and again.
