While The Dignitary adjoins the Marriott Marquis hotel on Massachusetts Avenue, regulars will likely tell you that it's much more than your average hotel bar. Here, the motto is "Great Minds Drink Alike." What else would you expect from a restaurant featuring more than 40 different whiskeys — both regional and local — and an array of handcrafted specialty cocktails mixed by expert bartenders?
If you'd prefer, you could order a draft beer and a few small plates to share with some friends from Yale West (try the hummus with warm pita or the shrimp dumplings with ginger hoisin sauce). Or toast a romantic evening with a glass of wine followed by a duck confit quesadilla and a cherry tomato and arugula salad. Request two spoons for a creme brulee for dessert!
With its supple leather sofas, crackling fireplace, and expansive patio space, The Dignitary cultivates an upscale atmosphere that's still warm and welcoming. Stop by for dinner, served 5 p.m. to midnight daily.
