The Line Hotel DC, Washington, D.C.
With three restaurants, two bars, a coffee shop and 24-hour room service, you can literally eat and drink around the clock at The Line Hotel DC. James Beard Award-winning chef Spike Gjerde is behind the brunch-and dinner restaurant, A Rake's Progress. The bounty of the Mid-Atlantic is on full-display here, so you're guaranteed a taste of the region no matter what you order, but the stone hearth centerpiece is your clue to order anything roasted or smoked, particularly small game such as rabbit, duck or quail. For an equally thoughtful and local approach to drinks, head to A Rake's Bar for fruit- and herb-based cocktails, communal punches and Maryland ciders on tap. Erik Bruner-Yang is behind the other two restaurants: Brothers and Sisters, a lobby restaurant and bar with shareable plates and snacks; and Spoken English, a standing-room restaurant and bar anchored by an open-flame oven that turns out dishes such as Peking duck, grilled yakitori and wagyu short rib. Don't miss desserts from acclaimed pastry chef Pichet Ong — the desserts are as delicious as they are striking, so it's no surprise to learn that Ong has a master's degree in architecture. Still hungry? The lively Adams Morgan neighborhood in which the hotel is located is chock-full of cafes, all-night diners and a variety of global restaurants, including Ethiopian, Salvadoran and Vietnamese spots.
