Behind Eden’s velvet rope, some of the District’s best club music fuels long nights of dancing, mingling, and drinking. Lush greenery drapes over the main bar, softening the space in honor of the venue’s verdant namesake. At happy hour, guests can snack on Japanese bites such as gyoza dumplings, sashimi, and veggie spring rolls from Eden’s sister establishment next door, Cafe Asia.
Café Asia's menu reads like a jetsetter's dream itinerary. Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Japan, and Vietnam. These seven East Asian countries may be the starting point for the eclectic lineup of spring rolls, ramen, fried rice, panggang, and noodle bowls, but it's Café Asia's chefs who take it to new places. The Vietnamese grilled pork demands special attention; chefs marinate the meat overnight with lime, garlic, fish sauce, and pepper. Café Asia could easily stand on its own as a sushi bar, however. Contemporary twists on traditional rolls have led to creations such as the eight-piece cajun roll with crawfish tail, sriracha, spicy mayo, and diced jalapeño, which is the world's spiciest fish.
The food's diversity has won many fans. In an article published on January 3, 2011, Examiner.com rightly noted that the restaurant has "enough choices to please almost any palate." The Washington Post also noted that the restaurant has hosted such distinguished guests as Dr. Jill Biden. Two full-service bars and a lounge allow Café Asia to host a slate of special events each year, including its New Year's Eve party.
