There is no bar menu at Plume, the fine dining restaurant at the Five-Star Jefferson, Washington, D.C. For bar fare, you can visit Quill, the hotel bar that is located across the lobby. The bar's seasonally changing menu includes myriad appetizers and sandwiches to nibble, ranging from $16 to $25 for a portion big enough to share. We shared a cheese plate composed of three cow's milk offerings, including a creamy and pungent Spanish blue cheese, spreading them over hearty grain toast with sweet fig compote. We also enjoyed the indulgent croque monsieur, an extra-cheese take on the classic French grilled cheese, filled with a mix of Gruyère and ham and but topped with more of the melty delight.
If you’re looking for a full dinner, Quill's grill offers entrées in the $25 to $30 range, including a roasted half-chicken, salmon fillet and the dry-aged sirloin burger. For a dinner worthy of Capitol Hill power brokers, try the six-ounce fillet or the 12-ounce strip steak. From these cuts and the House Made Roasted Bratwurst to the Amish Farmed Heirloom Tomato Salad, there are options for every taste and diet preference on the bar menu here.
