A Dupont Circle Restaurant & Wine Bar: Urbana at Hotel Palomar Washington DC, One of the Best Rated Restaurants in DC More


Not all Dupont Circle restaurants are created equal: some become instant favorites. Adowntown dining hotspot, Urbana Restaurant and Wine Bar has become such a place. Tucked inside Hotel Palomar Washington DC, Urbana mirrors the dynamism of its Dupont Circle neighborhood while maintaining the intimacy of a local hideout. Linger at the bar over a glass of wine and delectable small plates, or savor a full, aromatic meal in the dining room.

Discover a favorite cocktail, or explore Urbana's acclaimed wine list. An entire side of the restaurant is dedicated to wine storage, with new backlit bottles from wall to wall. The selection includes gems from Italy, Spain, France and the United States, with a special focus on sustainable wines. What's more, you can choose from around 30 wines by the ½ glass, glass or quartino to match your meal or sip on in the wine bar.

Our Executive Chef Ethan McKee, knows how to make Mediterranean small plates exciting by drawing on classic French and Italian culinary techniques to complement contemporary new flavor profiles. Born in Austin, Texas, McKee found his way into the kitchen at age 17, followed by culinary school at L'Academie de Cuisine in Gaithersburg. Previously landing two spots on the Washingtonian's "100 Best Restaurants List," Chef McKee brings a world full of experience and flavor to the restaurant we've all come to love.

Nothing says "refreshed" like having a little work done. From July through August, we're remodeling for a new look that's as fresh as our modern Italian fare, but you can still get your Urbana fix with bar service in Hotel Palomar's living room and patio. Our in house guests can sample some of Chef Ethan McKee's old and new favorites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner through in room dining, which will remain open during this time.
