Spanish Restaurant & Tapas Bar – Dupont

Lively Barcelona Style Tapas Bar in DC’s Dupont Circle

Boqueria Dupont

Located in the historic Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington DC, Boqueria Dupont is the go-to destination for after-work drinks during happy hour, where guests can enjoy the Spanish staple of el vermut; the early-afternoon tradition of small bites paired with an aperitif, or more commonly, vermouth on the rocks with Seltzer.

These social hours inevitably blend into festive dinners where groups of friends gather over tables of deceivingly simple, yet delicious tapas, large pans of succulent seafood paella, and pitchers of seasonal sangría.

On the weekends, brunch enthusiasts pack the sun-filled dining room for the bottomless selection of unlimited tapas, brunch classics including whole-roasted chicken and a succulent brunch paella, mimosas, sangrias, bloody marias, coffee, and sweets.

In The Press

“Boqueria Dupont Circle, a New York import from accomplished chef Marc Vidal, is a bright, modern destination for Barcelona-style tapas, market-driven seasonal specials and expert wine pairings.”

“Sitting at the bar at Boqueria feels somewhat like a busy counter or bar experience in Seville or Madrid. Off in the corner is a leg of Jamón ibérico, and it’s one of the few places where to find Kas soda (a Spanish favorite). For a fun all-you-can-eat experience, visit the restaurant for brunch on Saturday or Sunday, when the menu becomes bottomless.”
~ Eater DC

“It was a gutsy move for this Manhattan tapas bar to make its way to Washington, an already small-plates-mad town. Turns out that keeping the earth-toned dining rooms and Carrera-marble bar loud and crowded wasn’t a problem.”
~ Washingtonian

Lively, Barcelona-style tapas bar in NYC and Washington D.C.

Straining to find a good pun to use for this picture of a delicious group feast at Penn Quarter, but we're coming up a bit muddled, and to be honest, we're a little shaken up about it.

We don't want to stir up anything too old-fashioned, but we also need to make sure that it doesn't come off as too bitter.

Anyone in the spirit to give it a shot? Or come up with a twist? Extra points for a great punchline... #CaptionThis

This fluke is no fluke. 
The elegant balance of flavors in our Crudo de Lenguado is something worth savoring. 
Fluke crudo with green beans, basil, Marcona almonds, and citrus. 😍

The sun is shining, the grass is greening, and the grills are firing up! 🔥🔥 No better time to throw on a few of the hottest veggies of the season (in every sense of the word): Charred shishito peppers - perfect on their own with a sprinkling of coarse sea salt or to top off one of our shishito-infused tequila margaritas!

THE 5 O’CLOCK COCKTAIL! At 5 o'clock, the day is almost over, but the sun is still setting and it may not quite be time for that Manhattan or Martini. Instead, we have a cocktail that is part stiff whiskey and part bitter rhubarb amaro (Italian bitter digestif), leveled out with a refreshing splash of lemon juice, club soda, and fresh mint. Sol y Somber, sun and shade all in a glass; an early evening pick-me-up. 
It's 5 o'clock somewhere in the world, right? 🍹😎 #mint #cocktails #cocktailhour #craftcocktail #whisky #whiskey #mintjulep #cocktailgram #cocktailporn #mixologist #siponthat #f52grams #buzzfeast #foodandwine
Join us for The Rioja Railway Wine Experience on Wednesday, May 22nd at the High Line in New York City! We'll be serving up Cojonudo (Chorizo & Fried Quail's Egg on Toasts). Anyone know what 'cojonudo' translates to...? 😉
