From Mirabelle’s website:

“Mirabelle is a contemporary celebration of the American and French table offering refined fare from James Beard Award-winning Executive Chef Frank Ruta and Pastry Chef Aggie Chin. Influenced by modern American hospitality sensibilities, Mirabelle provides an inviting and sophisticated setting perfect for dining and entertaining in the heart of D.C.’s bustling downtown neighborhood, just two blocks north of the White House.

The new concept by restaurateur Hakan Ilhan (L’Hommage Bistro Francais, Ottoman Taverna, Al Dente and Alba Osteria), showcases Ruta and Chin’s approach to refined French fare and is intended to be a neighborhood gem and dining destination for any time of the day. It was at the White House where Ruta played an integral role on the kitchen team responsible for serving the First Families, world leaders and dignitaries under the Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush administrations.

Mirabelle’s nearly 4,300 square foot interior, designed by Norris Design Studio, harkens back to the mid-twentieth century when glamour and civility were both expected and celebrated. The entry vestibule sets the tone for the interior with stitched and tufted leather walls framed with solid walnut. Above, within a ceiling oculus hangs a custom brass and wood chandelier to light the way over a Carrara marble floor installation. The restaurant, comprised of 147 seats total, centers around an impressive collection of booths. Mirabelle’s handsome bar, boasting rich materials of Carrara marble, distressed mirror panels, and brass rosettes seats 22 guests. The private dining room lends itself well for parties of up to 45 guests. Weather permitting, Mirabelle’s outdoor patio offers additional seating for 66 guests.”
