5 Globally Inspired Hot Spots in DC

Grapevines frame the romantic patio at Iron Gate.  

1. Barcelona 14th Street
Enter a green (patio) oasis that makes you want to sip sangria and spend the day with nothing but olives and cheese to keep you company. This slice of one of the most romantic cities in Europe is perfect for brunch, lunch and dinner. 1622 14th St. NW

2. Iron Gate 
Add romance to every meal—be greeted by a century old wisteria and a few overhead grapevines framing the patio. Take a tour through Greece, Sicily, Sardinia and Southern Italy. 1734 N St. NW, 202.524.5202

3. Del Campo 
The courtyard in chef-owner Victor Albisu's hot spot offers a beer garden asado menu. 777 I St. NW, 202.289.7377

4. Le Diplomate 
Le Dip's patio transports you to a sidewalk cafe in Paris without the pressure to pronounce French words. You may butcher the pronunciation of a foie gras parfait (we don’t judge), but savor the taste! 1601 14th St. NW, 202.332.3333

5. Vinoteca 
Sip summer cocktails in between games of bocce and feasting on gourmet burgers. U Street transforms into an Italian alleyway graced with plenty of vino. 1940 11th St. NW, 202.332.9463
