The Oval Room, voted of the 100 very best restaurants by The Washingtonian’s food critics, will be one of the restaurants serving up their best at the Best of Washington party on Tuesday, July 8 at the National Building Museum.

Our critics wrote: “With its puréed fruits and vegetables, herb-infused oils, and delicately applied microgreens, chef Tony Conte’s brightly flavored food tastes straight out of revered chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s handbook. Which makes sense: Conte spent three years as executive sous chef of Vongerichten’s Manhattan flagship, Jean Georges."
