Marcel's - Washington, DC

A French/Belgium restaurant helmed by chef Robert Wiesmaier, expect a rather formal atmosphere, which is good if you're trying to appear classy. The menu is served in four to seven courses, and focuses on rich seafood and meat courses. Don't forget to save some calories for the decadent desserts which—when in season—include a flavor-popping warm black mission fig and almond tart.
