Whatever you excel at, Posh executive chef Christopher Willis can make you even better by feeding you his delicious culinary creations. Just ask acclaimed suspense author Tom Clancy. As his personal chef, Willis inspired Clancy with intriguing flavor combinations and allowed him to work unimpeded from his writing hammock. The elaborate system—Clancy rings bell, Willis brings amazing food—proved essential to the creation of some of the author's finest works.
While penning Clear and Present Danger, Clancy struggled with Harrison Ford's response to the President's line: "You'll destroy his reputation. But it won't go any further than that. It's the ol' Potomac two-step, Jack." After summoning Willis for a serving of St.-Louis-style BBQ ribs, Clancy received enough energy and inspiration to write Ford's legendary response: "I'm sorry, Mr. President, I don't dance." Thanks to that line, Clear and Present Danger received two Oscar nominations (best effects, best sound) and Willis became executive chef at one of DC's best restaurubs (restaurant and club).
Today’s Groupon gets you $35 worth of food and drink at Posh Restaurant & Supper Club, located at 730 11th St., for only $15. Modeled after the jazz clubs and speakeasies of yesteryear, Posh combines all of life's necessities (good food, live entertainment, oxygen, etc.) under one roof. Stop by one of DC's best late-night spots for a classy dinner for two or a rousing night out with friends.
Start your evening with an incredible meal cooked by executive chef Christopher Willis, who served as Tom Clancy's personal chef and has prepared dishes for Smokey Robinson, Denzel Washington, and Robert De Niro. Posh's celebrity-tested menu is chock full of savory specials. Don't miss out on the tasty braised lamb shank (served over vegetable ratatouille and topped with a rosemary espagnole sauce) or the exotic seared Jamaican-jerk rockfish (with sweet corn puree and a basil herb corn salsa).
When dinner's over, enjoy a wide range of live entertainment in a swanky lounge atmosphere. Posh offers Karaoke Wednesdays (check out the weekly highlight reel), live jazz on most Thursday evenings, and a DJ every Friday and Saturday night. Plus, the restaurant holds monthly events, such as Girlfriends Night Out and Old School Funk Fest (where the 2003 Will Ferrell comedy may or may not be synched with Sly & the Family Stone's 1973 release, Fresh).
- "Truly a wonderful dining experience. The waiter and servers were really attentive and friendly, food was DELICIOUS AND they apparently serve food until 1am! And you know that is extreeeemely rare in D.C. Also they have a live music and the cocktails are fantastic. What more could you ask for?" – OpenTable Reviewer
- “The nicest thing about Posh is that if you are in the mood to party without paying a cover, no problem. The second nicest thing is the sophisticated atmosphere and dim lighting. From the cozy, candle lit booths, to the upstairs bar and lounge area.” – Mitshi N., Yelp
- “The food was excellent and the service was outstanding.” – Jeff S., Yelp
