DC Power Dining For the 21st Century


History in the (Re)Making

Located in The Mayflower Renaissance Washington, DC Hotel just off K Street, EDGAR brings back the power lunch destination in celebration of Washington, DC as not only the center of American politics but a continually evolving city culture of entrepreneurship, energy and excitement. The Dupont Circle restaurant’s name is inspired by its most famous power lunch regular for over 20 years.

Bringing the spirit of the grand bar back to Connecticut Avenue, EDGAR is poised to become an iconic yet modern fixture within DC’s social and cultural scene. An upscale and modern eatery, EDGAR features bold traditional American brassiere cuisine and authentically crafted cocktails.
