The RAMMY Award-winning Charlie Palmer Steak Washington DC has reopened, just over a year after suspending operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting today, Capitol Hill’s power dining destination since 2003 is once again welcoming dinner and bar guests to its dramatic space in the United Brotherhood of Carpenters headquarters.
“Spring is traditionally a time of renewal and this season in particular, feels hopeful as we move closer to putting the pandemic behind us,” said Charlie Palmer, whose signature progressive American cooking has earned him an enduring reputation among the world’s most celebrated chefs and restaurateurs. “We have greatly missed our Capitol Hill community and couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome everyone back.”
Catering to high-octane business lunches and after-work get-togethers, the restaurant is now open Monday through Friday for dinner and bar service only, 5 to 9 p.m., and, starting April 26, it will resume lunch service from 11:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. and happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m. as well as expand its bar hour from 11: 45 a.m. to 9 p.m.
With the restaurant’s reopening, guests can once again enjoy signature dishes from the Capitol Hill Salad to steaks like a 30-day dry-aged Prime Porterhouse for Two. Under Executive Chef Zach Long’s direction, Palmer and Long have created menus that are a celebration of bold American flavors, showcasing the best American artisan beef cuts, from a Bone-On Ribeye to Wagyu A5 Miyazaki Striploin to Steak Tartare. The menus also place a strong focus on fish and seafood, with offerings like Big Glory Bay King Salmon and Pan Seared Atlantic Halibut..
Seating will be indoors with limited outdoor dining, and reservations are encouraged through OpenTable.
