The Oval Room, just steps from the White House, is one of my favorite restaurants. It’s the perfect place for a special occasion dinner. I also love going there for a late lunch for their $20 bar lunch special. Executive Chef John Melfi always prepares the most beautiful dishes. Think crispy salmon skin presented with roasted beets, warm chestnut volute, and house made pasta with black truffle garnish.
