Art and Soul Restaurant Review

: One of Capitol Hill’s classiest eateries is on the ground floor of The Liaison Capitol Hotel, just off the lobby, making this a convenient stopover for Hill types on their way to or from meetings: keep your ears open, as you may hear some interesting political tidbits. It’s also the brainchild of owner-chef Art Smith, and showcases comforting Southern regional cooking handled gently. The lunch menu is replete with such faves as hoe cakes and hamburgers, plus an array of more serious eats: steak frites and roasted salmon. In the evening, look for such entrées as pan-seared rockfish, fried chicken, and rabbit and dumplings, plus all sorts of must-have sides. Because it is a hotel restaurant, it offers a limited breakfast menu of such sturdy choices as steel-cut oatmeal, a farmer’s breakfast, and whole-wheat waffles. Check out the happy hours and several nightly specials. In warm weather, eat on the "pooch patio."
