Poste Moderne Brasserie, an upscale contemporary brasserie located in downtown Washington DC, features modern American cuisine emphasizing fresh, local ingredients. A bustling 176-seat restaurant, bar and outside courtyard, Poste is accessed through a historic carriageway portal and makes its home in the original sorting room of the 1841 General Post Office. The 16-foot cast-iron ceilings and skylights from the original post office have been fully restored and overlook the inviting dining room of raised platforms, plush booths and original paintings by American artists.
Set in this welcoming space, guests are invited to indulge in Poste's signature dishes, such as Pineland Farms beef tartare - served with house-made brioche - the Wreckfish served with champ potatoes and red wine poached egg or the Beef Bourguignon with roasted fingerlings and organic market vegetables. The mouthwatering dishes pair well with the award-winning wine list of predominantly California and French wines, which features over 100 selections, including a dozen wines by the glass. The bar, which offers classic cocktails and small plates, makes a popular spot after work or after theater. Named for its historic landmark location, Poste has quickly become a favorite for locals and visitors alike.
