Seasonal Buzz in the West End
- As part of The Fairmont’s environmental stewardship program, chef Ian Bens raises Italian honeybees on the hotel’s rooftop and incorporates the honey into many of his dishes. Don’t miss the Bee-tini cocktail with Grey Goose Citron, Sauza Plata tequila, lemon juice and a chunk of fresh honeycomb.
- Dessert features a Beehive Tasting of honey-drenched mini-Bundt cake, bee pollen and propolis ice cream.
- The whole wheat walnut honey bread, baked to order and served warm with honey butter, is worth every penny of its $3 surcharge.
- Juniper's Market Fresh Brunch on Sunday from 11am- 2:00pm features a limitless buffet, plus an entree selection and bottomless mimosas for $48.
Good to Know
- There is a comprehensive Lifestyle Cuisine Plus menu that caters to a wide range of dietary needs: vegan; macrobiotic; DASH/Heart Healthy; raw; diabetic; and gluten-free.
- The Fairmont has what is perhaps the most charming, private open-air courtyard in Washington, which makes al fresco dining especially pleasurable.
- Valet parking is available at the hotel’s 24th Street entrance, but they charge by the hour and do not validate for restaurant guests: 1 hour: $13; 2 hours: $19; 3 hours: $25. Best bet: go for the metered parking on M Street, especially right at 6:30pm when street parking opens up. (You still have to feed the meter until 10pm)
