Unconventional Diner serves inspired dishes that blend soulful comfort with haute technique. The menu is studded with imaginative delights that echo the restaurant's name, from French fries with "sexy sauce" to spring rolls with "Franch" dressing to a meatloaf "nothing like anyone's mom's.” Chef David Deshaies, a much-praised protege of Michel Richard, is the culinary force behind this highly anticipated spot in Shaw. Craft beer and cocktails add to the alchemy for diners looking for an entertaining (and delicious) culinary experience.

 

Cocktail week pairing

For DC Cocktail Week we will be featuring a specialty cocktail made with Dogfish Head Roasted Peanut Vodka, port reduction Jack Rudy Grenadine, Amaretto and Egg white paired with our Foie Gras PB & J. Chef David’s take on an unconventional Foie Gras and berry combination, will be served on a piece of toast with a concord grape and port reduction, pomegranate seeds, sliced celery, and dehydrated peanut butter snow. The cocktail pairing literally mirrors the flavors of the Dish. $22 for the pairing per person.
