The sophistication of the restaurant remains the same. Witt’s standout dishes include the Arugula Pappardelle with shenandoah lamb ragu, marisa cheese, or the Rockfish Tartare with green gazpacho. The menu has plenty of warm fall dishes, and you can get them for a steal with the $35 prix fixe theater menu. Or, sit at the bar to grab them ala carte and try 701‘s classic cocktails.
The chef’s use of local meat producers ensures an eco-friendly approach to cooking that is quickly becoming standard at DC’s best restaurants. Bajaj says he chose Witt because of, “His cooking skills, [and] passion for using farm to table approach in cooking.”
Stop by for a reinvigorated menu full of delectable seasonal cooking. 701 is located at 701 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW.
