Olivier Le Ru-Riboulot invited SWS to dine at 901 Restaurant and Bar‘s intimate chef’s table. 901 is Penn Quarter’s most elegant destination eatery, specializing in American-Asian cuisine. The hotspot boasts sleek and modern décor with an urban yet sophisticated ambiance.

One of our favorite unique touches was the light up menus. Our photographer tried to capture our amusement.

The restaurant’s drink menu compliments its mouth-watering eats, with a wide range of craft cocktails, wines and beers. 901 boosts an impressive selection of craft beer. 901′s sister restaurant, Capital City Brewing Company provides the locally brewed beers. 901 has a massive selection of pale ales and stouts.
