Le Diplomate pays sincere homage to French cafe culture, providing a comfortable, versatile gathering place that’s become an anchor for Washington, D.C.’s resurgent 14th Street corridor.

Painstakingly built out of a historic structure that harnesses the artful spirit of a Parisian brasserie, the interior and exterior pay subtle tribute to tradition, imbuing every meal with a sweeping sense of European drama. The extensive menu features a variety of Gallic classics, including onion soup gratinée, steak frites and escargots, as well as daily plates such as bouillabaisse and cassoulet. A thoughtfully curated wine list and specialty cocktail program complete the transporting experience.

Group Dining

Le Diplomate pays homage to French café culture by providing a comfortable place for enjoying classics such as Onion Soup Gratinée, Steak Frites, and Escargots. Towering plateaus of oysters, clams, shrimp cocktail and lobster are the perfect start to a meal, and the crusty made-in-house baguettes are the ideal accompaniment to a selection of regional French cheeses.
