Set gently back from Capitol Hill, shaded by flowering trees and shrubs, the Morrison-Clark Restaurant, occupying the former drawing room of the original townhome built in 1864, offers an elegant, timeless option among Washington DC restaurants. The full service kitchen is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The main dining room, with its gilded mirrors, crystal chandeliers and marble fireplaces, is an ideal setting for romantic dinners, holiday reservations, or an evening escape from the city. The more casual Bar and Lounge serves lunch and evening cocktail service and during the warmer seasons, take advantage of outdoor seating on our front veranda or in the secluded courtyard.
