What You'll Get

The monopoly tycoons of the 19th century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at fine dining establishments, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their parents. Feast like it’s the Gilded Age with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of new American cuisine at The Fourth Estate restaurant. Housed within the National Press Club, the restaurant is open to members and nonmembers alike. This Groupon is not valid during restaurant week.

Using fresh, local ingredients, executive chef Susan Delbert whips up small but powerful lunch and dinner menu items, with starters such as roasted pepper soup ($6.75) and an arugula, goat cheese, and candied walnut appetizer with lemon and cilantro marinated mushrooms splashed with an herb vinaigrette ($8). As for main munchies, the NPC jumbo lump crab cakes are paired with artichokes, crispy eggplant, and Kalamata olives ($25), while the filet of beef is crowned with a bing cherry demi glace and sidekicked with chive mashed potatoes and sautéed summer squash ($19). The Fourth Estate offers a staggering array of wines, or you can exercise your constitutional right to consume raisin-bread french toast ($10.50) and steak and eggs ($17.75) with spicy Bloody Marys ($5.27) during brunch.

The National Press Club is the stomping ground of journalists, politicians, authors, and dignitaries, so don't be surprised if you spot a TV crew interviewing an important person while you're savoring the meats important people eat. The elegant dining room has wood chairs, white tablecloths, pure white plates, sparkling wine glasses, and warm earth-toned walls, so you could make a real mess if you wanted to. It's the ideal place for a business lunch, an intimate dinner, or a secret superhero convention.

Reservations are suggested.


Eight Yelpers give the restaurant a three-star rating:

  • The food was excellent, the service was attentive and the history of the club added something extra. – Sarah R.
  • Wednesday night lobster is brilliant, the lobster is seasoned with something barely detectable, but completely delicious and addictive- I can't rave enough. – Heathen M.
