Over het restaurant

This Catalonian spot is modeled after Spain’s renowned chiringuitos, or beach bars. Sweeping river views and a solid happy hour ($6 sangrias, anyone?) add to its unique charm, as does its striking shipping container facade. BARCA’s generous outdoor dining setup features 200 seats spread across tables, a bar, and a lounge area, all covered by retractable awnings. No matter where you sit, you can’t go wrong with an order of crispy patatas bravas with lemon-garlic aioli and the jamón Serrano croquettes drizzled with Aleppo-orange honey.

Over het restaurant

Watch yachts, kayaks, and paddle boards cruise the Potomac River from the waterfront patio at this lively Georgetown spot. The restaurant is owned by a farmers’ collective, so expect plenty of sustainable ingredients in its salad lineup and mains such as lemon herb baked chicken. The restaurant’s signature five-layer pressed sushi rolls with Old Bay crab taste even better outdoors. Consider an in-house barrel-aged cocktail to sip as you take in the charming river views.

This secluded Penn Quarter landmark is housed in the square courtyard of the Kimpton Hotel Monaco, the district’s first all-marble neoclassical building (and former headquarters of the General Post Office).

Over het restaurant

Dauphine’s channels the vibrant soul of New Orleans’s French Quarter. The NOLA vibes come from a 4,000 square-foot outdoor dining space (open year round) that includes a lively sidewalk patio and pretty garden oasis, complete with a tiled Spanish fountain and a 30-seat outdoor bar. Executive chef Kristen Essig's inventive use of seasonal mid-Atlantic ingredients on the Creole-inspired menu (highlights include scallop amandine and wild fish with grilled artichoke) earned Dauphine's several accolades, including MICHELIN Bib Gourmand status and stellar reviews from local food critics.

Over het restaurant

New England vibes abound at this sustainable seafood spot on the Anacostia River. Feast on oysters, lobster rolls, baked pimento crab dip, and stuffies (baked clams topped with smoked sausage and Parmesan). The Salt Line is also adored for its wide beer selection, best paired with river views from its scenic patio. The lively space is now accessible year-round, thanks to clear insulated curtains that don’t sacrifice water vistas during the cooler months.

Over het restaurant

Evening Star Cafe is a neighborhood gem that has remained a Del Ray staple since opening in 1997. Residents come for a seat in the relaxed backyard beer garden or on the buzzier porch, a prime people-watching spot. Both setups make enjoyable backdrops for a wine-themed brunch—Evening Star has nearly 1,500 wines to choose from—or a locally sourced dinner featuring dishes such as roast cauliflower with pumpkin seed pesto and citrus-brined pork chop with braised kale and baked beans.

Over het restaurant

Head to Iron Gate, a storied spot in Dupont Circle. Housed in a former stable and carriageway townhouse dating back to the late 19th-century, it’s one of D.C.’s oldest restaurants. Centuries-old wisteria, twinkling string lights, and grapevines charm diners in its storied backyard garden patio. Heavy on the Italian and Greek flavors, Iron Gate’s menu is known for seasonal mezze-style dishes; dishes such as the potato and ramp keftedes (meatballs) with goat feta and a morel-whiskey cream have earned it a spot on many of DC’s “best of” lists since reopening under new ownership in 2013.
