Two Washington Spots Are Among “Esquire’s” Power Meal Picks

The men’s mag singles out a Capitol Hill classic and a Georgetown restaurant with “the best name ever.”

Bourbon Steak, pictured here on our January 2012 cover, gets a nod from Esquire.

If there’s a national restaurant list on which Washington should shine, a collection of “best power meals in America” seems like the one. Esquire recently herded up its favorite eating establishments for conducting business, and two District dining spots made the cut.

The men’s mag liked the Monocle on Capitol Hill, noting that a trip the D Street stalwart is “a good way to make eye contact with DC Power.” Meanwhile, the fact that it has “the best name ever” is not the only reason to hit up Bourbon Steak, per the pub. “It’s a smart, beautiful room with a talented young chef, Adam Sobel.” Not mentioned was the newly reopened room downstairs from Bourbon Steak, despite the fact that many a big deal gets made over breakfast there.
