Hidden away on the second floor of a Mount Vernon Square hotel with only a small sign at street level, Corduroy caters to a clientele who know exactly what they are looking for. With soft lighting, understated decor, and the kind of quiet elegance that comes from a lifetime of training, this restaurant serves dinner from Monday through Saturday.
Head chef and owner Tom Power, one of the best-regarded figures in the region’s culinary scene, presides over a menu that focuses on fresh, locally sourced New American cuisine, with flashes of Asian influence. Menu standouts include the crisp-skinned striped bass, lobster carpaccio, and guinea hen confit. Regulars recommend the chef’s five-course tasting menu, which showcases the range and quality of Corduroy’s cooking staff.
