THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sou'Wester Restaurant Review

: First of all, this restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC, does not serve Southwestern fare. Instead, the name comes about as a play on words: the hotel is located in DC’s Southwest zone, and as opposed to Nor’easters, what the city gets in the way of storms might well be called “Sou’westers.” Well, something like that. So under the watchful eye of chef Eric Ziebold and his staff, you’ll find a kitchen that offers an array of fare inspired by the cuisine of the Mid-Atlantic. It’s an intimate setting, made to look larger with the use of a mirrored wall, and a pleasant destination for a non-Southwestern meal.
