Inspired by iconic neighborhood bistros in Paris, with its name originating from Duke Ellington Park, located across the street, and the grandeur of the late Washington D.C. native, Ellington Park Bistro carries a magnetism around its stunning central bar, where discerning creatives and change-makers meet.

Serving delectable breakfast, brunch, happy hour, and dinner, step into a quaint corner restaurant with upscale twists on contemporary French classics. Situated between the energy of nearby Dupont Circle and the charm of historic Georgetown, snack on a cocktail and a raw bar selection and chat with your favorite bartender, or make it a standing weekly dinner date in one of our emerald velvet booths. Ellington Park Bistro brings out the DC native in all of us.
