Judging Restaurants – Taberna Del Alabardero

Taberna Del Alabardero is located at 1776 I Street NW (Entrance On 18th Street between H and I). According to their Web site:

“In his first venture abroad, Luis Lezama crossed the Atlantic to open Taberna Del Alabardero in the Nation’s Capital city on March 27, 1989. Washingtonian Magazine restaurant critic Robert Shoffner calls it “The best Spanish restaurant in the Country”. The New York Times enthusiastically greeted the restaurant’s arrival, just four blocks from The White House, saying Lezama was “… finally bringing a sophisticated Spanish Kitchen to the Nation’s Capital…

Since 1989 Taberna quickly garnered high praise and a legion of acolytes, fast forward 21 years later executive Chef Javier Romero continues to carry the torch that was established. While the restaurant regularly plays host to diplomats and dignitaries, all of our guest are special, and we welcome you as we would into our own home.
