Thanksgiving is a time for celebrating friends, family and great food. This year, we have so many reasons to be grateful — we’re thankful for you for using Reserve and for all our restaurant partners, old and new, who make it possible for you to enjoy life’s special occasions, have a fun night out with friends and always bring something new to the table.
OLD FRIENDS (JALEO – PENN QUARTER)
At Jaleo, Reserve D.C.’s first restaurant partner, Chef José Andrés brings the rich regional diversity of traditional and modern Spanish cuisine to vibrant life through an array of tapas and paellas. Sangrias, wines and sherries are served at the lively, laid-back hotspot.
NEW FRIENDS (TABLE – SHAW)
New to Reserve, Table is a farm-to-fork eatery serving a frequently changing menu of contemporary European cuisine for dinner, lunch and brunch. The sleek, rustic space — featuring wood and steel accents, an expansive open kitchen and a rooftop patio — complements the fresh-focused menu. The carefully selected wine list delights alongside the dynamic selection of cheese and charcuterie.
SPECIAL MOMENTS (G BY MIKE ISABELLA – 14TH STREET)
Make any occasion extra special at G by Mike Isabella, which serves authentic Italian cuisine by Chef de Cuisine Elliot Drew at night. The restaurant’s brick walls, wood finishings and old-school Italian tablecloths contribute to its homey yet vibrant atmosphere.
NIGHTS OUT WITH FRIENDS (DOI MOI – 14TH STREET)
Doi Moi serves creative Southeast Asian fare — including gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian dishes — inspired by the region’s street stands and stalls. The restaurant features white oak decor, whitewashed brick walls and an open kitchen, and boasts a chic, bustling environment. Unconventional cocktails, beers and wines keep things lively for a fun night out with friends.
AMERICAN CUISINE (THE PIG – LOGAN CIRCLE)
American cuisine has changed a lot since the first Thanksgiving feast. The Pig delivers on its name, serving pork-centric New American dishes and fresh seafood. The friendly space evokes rustic, regional feelings, with repurposed barn wood on the walls and Americana-style art. Regional spirits, homemade bitters and a lengthy list of American beers are available to wash down the hearty fare.
