The Federalist at The Madison Hotel in McPherson Square Washington DC is a comfortable upscale restaurant that offers the best mid-Atlantic fare. From seafood to fresh locally grown produce The Federalist gains a following for many of it’s recipes. Some of the most praised are the Chesapeake Rockfish, a delicious melt in your mouth fillet and the Carolina Gold Rice, a cheesy risotto with crab meat.
The cushy couches and friendly service allows guest to take their time, relax and enjoy the meal (and possibly lick their plates). This is a great spot to decompress after a long day at work, or a active day on the hill. If you would like to be quickly sent off into a warm sea food slumber we suggest the creamy gnocchi with grilled calamari. These perfect pillows of gnocchi were the perfect compliment to the atmosphere and countered the cold weather outside.
The full bar at the restaurant offers specialty cocktails that are artfully presented. We suggest that you stop into the Madison’s Federalist Restaurant for Sunday Brunch which is a generously portioned 3 course Prix fixe with appetizers and desserts shared at the table. We loved the eggs Benedict and polished off table favorite, the woopie pie for dessert.
The quiet atmosphere lends itself to a calm evening or a productive lunch with clientele, with impeccable service and great tasting food, everything about this restaurant has us coming back!
