The best tables are outside at Café du Parc, the French bistro at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Willard InterContinental in Washington, D.C.
Especially if you’re there in springtime, grab a table outside on Pennsylvania Avenue to enjoy blooming cherry blossoms, spring breezes, and people-watching as tourists come from the nearby National Mall and Hill workers head home or to happy hour.
There's more than just people to see: From your table at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant, you'll also enjoy views of the Capitol, the Washington Monument, and the oft-overlooked executive branch office building. Who knows, you might even catch a glimpse of a power broker or visiting head of state speeding by in their motorcade.
The best table at Café du Parc is Table 31. It is one of the four booths, which can seat up to four guests. It overlooks Pennsylvania Avenue as well as the park and the White House grounds. In season, any table at our main terrace is the best table. Of course, a seat on our seasonal outdoor terrace on Pennsylvania Avenue is the perfect place to see and be seen.
