If we’re not experiencing one of DC’s weather extremes, we recommend sitting on the Patio. The views are really that good. This historic gem gets the classics right, and we suggest ordering an Old Fashioned to have a sip of yesteryear.
Our Overall Rating: 4.2/5
History abounds at Occidental Grill, and sitting on the patio lets you soak it all in with an amazing view. The drinks are simple, but well done. The bites are satisfying. When you come here, you come for the powerful vibes of history in your wine glass. If we’re taking a walk on the national mall, this is one of our favorite spots (especially on Wednesdays) to drop into.
