Union Market Debut

Ode to Mexico at El Presidente

El Presidente, Stephen Starr’s latest foray into Washington, celebrates Mexican cuisine in a festive, 6,000-square-foot Union Market locale. Designers at AvroKO conjured its “neo-retro” interiors. The main dining room features an elaborate raw bar while the bar room is crowned by a surrealist diorama depicting scenes of land and sea. Agave spirits reign, with about 100 tequilas and 50 mezcals ready to sample. Menu highlights include fresh seafood, from ceviche to the Gran Torre de Mariscos and prime Tomahawk ribeye with grilled bone marrow. 1255 Union Street, NE; 202-318-4820. elpresidentedc.com
