MICHELIN Guide 2017
801 O St. NW, Washington 20001
From $25 to $49


Truth be told, Convivial excels in all areas. It scores major points for its location, anchoring the base of City Market at O in the up-and-coming Shaw neighborhood; ranks high on style with its clean, rustic-modern aesthetic; and boasts service so downright relaxed, the servers wear jeans and sneakers. But the reason customers keep coming back to this lively and energetic hot spot is most certainly for the food: bold and playful takes on the tried-and-true that are made for sharing. Popular with young professionals, families, and academics from nearby Howard, the whimsical, new-meets-old menu marries French and American cuisine-think garlicky, deep-fried escargots in a blanket, fried chicken coq au vin, or Chesapeake blue catfish bouillabaisse.
