DC Debut

Ellington Park Bistro puts a modern twist on French fare

Named for Washington-born Duke Ellington, Ellington Park Bistro made its debut last fall in the District’s St. Gregory Hotel. New York designer Melissa Bowers spearheaded the sleek interiors featuring a central bar, booths swathed in emerald-hued velvet and a fireplace lounge. Chef Frank Morales, a veteran of the Oval Room in DC and Le Cirque in New York, devised the menu. Guests are tempted by classics such as PEI mussels and frites along with cocktails. 2033 M Street, NW; 202-888-2899; ellingtonparkbistro.com  Photos: JUAN FERNANDO AYORA
