August 1 Five Restaurant Review

: Chef Manish Tyagi (Washington's Rasika; Taj Resorts) is in the kitchen at August 1 Five, crafting seasonal, regional dishes from central and northern India that venture beyond the standards. The upscale-yet-welcoming dining room features 90 seats, convenient to pre- or post-theatre and museum dining. Cocktails and wines are also a specialty.
