Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of pan-European cuisine and specialty drinks at One Lounge, located in the heart of Dupont Circle, one block from the Metro.

Quench your appetite and stuff your thirst with the culinary creations and cocktails at One Lounge. Its dining menu seamlessly welds southern-, central-, and eastern-European cuisines into an appetite-crushing monster of flavor, reborn anew from scratch every day. Open up with an appetizer of deviled eggs with smoked bacon and wasabi mayo ($9), and follow it up with a relaxed, laid-back lounge plate such as the Greek burgers made with lamb meat and topped with melted mozzarella and mint ($11), shrimp sautéed with coconut curry and thai basil ($12), or pan-fried salmon on a bed of spring onions and leeks with zesty lemon chutney ($13). For heftier eating, patrons can partake of a dinner plate of Belgian hanger steak with Béarnaise sauce and sautéed onions ($13) or baby lamb chops with a rosemary-Cabernet reduction and Parisian potatoes ($14). Dim the lights on the dinner with a dessert, such as the chocolate brownie or the seasonally flavored lollipop cheesecake ($9).
One's chic atmosphere forms the perfect backdrop for a drink such as the Hulk-baiting whiskey smash, with its rye, muddled lemon and mint, and simple syrup ($12), or the Skull Splitter ale ($8). Enjoy your drink from a tiled patio table or at the backlit deco-glass bar, or gather friends and lounge about on One Lounge's sofas beneath the curved-glass skylight whilst you argue passionately about the proper use of the umlaut.
- “Consistently” “scrumptious” Northern Italian “with an upscale touch”, and “at reasonable prices”, is the hallmark of this ever-extending family of “rustic, homey” city and suburban eateries, where the frequently “changing menu” makes “everything a special” – Zagat
- Very fun martinis and cocktails. Very nice, laid back but cool atmosphere. Would definitely go back for happy hour. – OpenTable.com reviewer who dined on 05/14/2010
