Café Dupont

A Zagat-rated dining destination attached to the Dupont Circle Hotel, Café Dupont serves French-inspired feasts of delicacies such as poached lobster and truffled steak frites. Executive Chef David Fritsche gives each dish on the menu a creative flourish—he encrusts scallops with hazelnuts and morels, for instance, and garnishes them with nettle foam. He's also known for his commitment to organic and artisanal ingredients, which he and his team gather from the neighborhood farmers' market.

Meet the Chef

Executive Chef Fritsche has both cooking and hospitality in his bloodline. Growing up in his grandmother’s hotel in the Swiss Alps, he watched his mother transform fruits and vegetables from the garden into enticing meals for guests. He followed in his family's footsteps by apprenticing at Grand Hotel Quellenhof in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, where he deepened his knowledge of French cuisine, and later working kitchens in Dubai, Ireland, and New York City. Today, he draws on the sum of his expertise to man the kitchen at Café Dupont.

A Contemporary Twist on French Cuisine

The dishes on Café Dupont's menu reflect French culinary tradition, yet also highlight the chef's creativity. Below are a few of our favorites.

Spring Garlic Soup Poached Lobster Truffle Steak Frites
Grit fritters soak up the summery flavors of pickled ramps and fiddlehead ferns in this garlicky soup. Succulent poached lobster gets a kick from champagne vinaigrette and tomato ice. Black angus steaks from Creekstone Farm pair with truffle-infused fries and creamy béarnaise.

    “Restaurant: Great service and unique food offerings, nice ambiance, both inside and outside, best location in DC! Note to Groupon: the reservation I made when purchasing the coupon was declined for no reason, 1 day before the date... I had to call in the restaurant and make personally the reservation and also made a 2nd reservation thru Groupon, Groupon should probably fix something on your system,... also the drop box for available hours for reservation showed only 5 thru 7.45pm... I needed a reservation later 8 pm...”
