The word posh is believed to derive from the days of long sea voyages, when upper-class passengers would stamp the acronym P.O.S.H (Podiatrists Only Shall Handle) on their shoes when leaving them out to be shined. With today's Groupon, regain the glory days of refinement through a night of hip entertainment and dining at Posh Restaurant & Supper Club. For $15, you'll get $35 worth of ambrosial food and drink. Modeled after the jazz clubs and speakeasies of yesteryear (flapper yesteryear, not dinosaur yesteryear, which is way too scary), Posh combines all of life's necessities (good food, live entertainment, oxygen) under one roof. Stop by the chic lounge that Open Table diners call one of DC's Hot Spots and Vibrant Bar Scenes for a romantic dinner or a rousing night out with friends.
Start your evening with a mouthwatering meal from executive chef Christopher Willis, who served as Tom Clancy's personal chef (and so probably knows how to fly an MH-47 Chinook, if you have any questions), who has also prepared dishes for the likes of Smokey Robinson, Denzel Washington, and Stardust's Robert De Niro. Posh's celebrity-tested menu is chock full of savory specials that will please a diverse array of palates. Don't miss out on the tasty braised lamb shank (served over vegetable ratatouille and topped with a rosemary espagnole sauce, $18) or the spicy Jamaican-jerk rockfish (with sweet corn puree and a basil herb corn salsa, $22). Indulge on a trio of divine and devilish foods from the sea and land with lobster sausage diablo pasta (with sweet peas and peppers in a spicy vodka sauce, $19) and entice your vegetarian friends with the warm mushroom salad, dressed with garlic soy sauce, served over fresh spinach, and topped with fried tofu ($14). Enjoy homespun Southern eats amidst the throbbing pulse of the city with Posh's decadent waffle and chicken, with your choice of white or dark meat ($14).
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, Old School Funk Fest, and Tuesday.
Your Groupon does not apply to Restaurant Week specials or New Year's Eve.
