There is no shortage of luxury dining rooms in DC. The tricky part is determining which ones are truly worth the money.
One of the great perks of being a DC food photographer is getting to create photos at some of the best restaurants in town. So when the Washington Post Magazine called me to photograph three restaurants to go with Tom Sietsema’s review for their first every Luxury Edition, I couldn’t refuse. I made photos at Marcel’s by Robert Wiedmaier for their Sunday brunch; Bourbon Steak at the Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown for their A5 Miyazaki Japanese Wagyu and at Elizabeth’s Gone Raw for their unique high-end Vegan food experience.
The other fun part of doing this job is, of course, getting to sample what I photograph. I don’t always get to eat, but in all three of these luxurious restaurants, the chefs were very generous and I admit it, I took them up on their offer. But only after I made sure I had the perfect photographs. I can also report that all three were delicious and very different. Anyone who knows me knows I am NOT a Vegan but the food at Elizabeth’s is so creative and different. I was impressed.
