Contemporary and casual, Westend Bistro is the hotel restaurant of The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C. Featuring sleek yet warm décor, Westend Bistro specializes in a contemporary American take on classic bistro cuisine. The restaurant is well suited to groups of businessmen and politicians and romantic dinners à deux alike. In warm weather, the outdoor patio is a popular place to dine. Given the restaurant’s location in a business-heavy area of downtown and its affiliation with the Ritz-Carlton hotel, most guests will be in slightly more business-oriented attire than the bistro title suggests. During its weekday happy hours, Westend Bistro draws a younger local crowd.
