The Monocle’s food – very American, surf-and-turf-type stuff – is generally good, occasionally great, sometimes disappointing. But people don’t come here to eat so much as to celebrity spot, and seeing as this good ol’ boys’ club is just behind the Capitol, your chances of seeing Senator Smith aren’t bad.

The dark bar and the walls help drive home the fact that it is a politicians’ place first and foremost; note the quotes (‘If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog’).
