Occidental Grill & Seafood opened next to the Forbes Travel Guide recommended Willard InterContinental in 1906, and has hosted hundreds of statesmen from nearby Capitol Hill during its time — many of their photos line the walls of the restaurant. The wallpaper of who's who earned the Occidental its slogan, "Where Statesmen Dine." Statesmen come here for executive chef Rodney Scruggs' simple, fresh, local ingredients. His side dishes are a delicious steal, like the sautéed Brussels sprouts with pancetta and the lobster mashed potatoes that have more chunks of the buttery seafood than a Maine lobster roll.
