Pineapple & Pearls is hands down the best meal I've ever had. From the welcome cocktails to the personalized service, the entire experience feels like home. They do nice touches that all restaurants of this caliber should do - have you pay in advance so you never have to see a check, refill your glasses at no additional charge if one member of your party likes a bit more, and are more than willing to give you seconds and thirds on coffee. I've come twice and both times left utterly delighted. It's currently $280 for drink, food, tip and tax but is going up to $325 in April.

Best overall dining experience in DC. I'm not a food critic or chef so can't compare on a pure cuisine level but I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here. I preferred it to Eleven Madison Park, which is highly touted as having remarkable service. The dishes are always fun and enjoyable regardless of ones experience with fine dining.

I don't understand how this place only has 2 Michelin stars. I had the non-alcoholic pairing with my tasting and all the drinks were so creative. As soon as you walk in for your dinner, they make sure you have the best experience. I had some dietary restriction which they were so kind to accommodate. Love this place. Everything is included and you don't have to fuss with a check.
