Where to Get a Glimpse of Spring With Your Meal

Jonquils and magnolia trees are blossoming, so despite the chill March winds and snow, we know that spring is on the way. If you’re looking for places to enjoy a drink and a bite while watching the area’s outdoor beauty unfold, here are some dining options with lovely vernal views.

Ancora: While the decor inside Bob Kinkead’s Italian “pop-up” in the former Rivers at the Watergate space is pretty ho-hum, the wraparound windows allow bar and dining room tables to overlook the foliage surrounding the Kennedy Center and the Potomac River banks.

Charlie Palmer Steak: At this Capitol Hill power palace, the much-vaunted glimpses of the Capitol Dome are enhanced by views of the blossoming foliage on the Capitol grounds.

LAuberge Chez Francois: While dining alfresco at this beloved Alsatian retreat in Great Falls, VA, surrounded by trees and greenery, it’s easy to imagine you’re in the French countryside.

Old Angler’s Inn: A meal just off the C&O Canal in Potomac, MD, at this venerable New American’s terrace, informal beer garden or upstairs dining room, is a charming way to watch spring unfold.

2941: Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase beautifully landscaped grounds and a lake at this French-American bistro in Falls Church, VA, offering ever-changing vistas of the region’s flowering beauty.
