Xiquet (chee-KETT) by international award-winning Chef Danny Lledó joined the select ranks of MICHELIN Star restaurants in DC in 2021, just one year after first welcoming guests to the intimate dining room in Glover Park. Xiquet is now known as one of the best fine dining restaurants in Washington DC for memorable, product-focused dishes served with warm, Mediterranean hospitality. The sought-after tasting menu experience showcases innovative preparations of the traditional cuisine of Valencia, ignited by a wood-fire kitchen where Chef Danny creates dishes to order using the finest products sourced both locally and internationally. The flavors of Valencia reflect the region’s warm coastal climate, abundant agriculture, and plentiful fresh seafood. It is also the cradle of the famed Spanish rice dish, Paella.

Your experience at Xiquet begins in our beautiful lounge, where you can enjoy a round of drinks while you peruse the chef’s menu for the evening (updated regularly to reflect the season and the freshest ingredients) at your leisure. From there, you are guided upstairs to our airy top-floor dining room, delighting in the excitement and aromas as you pass by Chef Danny’s entirely wood-fire kitchen enclosed in glass. Dinner is a chef-driven experience, often featuring rare jewels like the Red Prawn of Dénia on the a la carte and tasting menus and an extensive yet focused wine list. Whether you are looking for new restaurant experiences, romantic restaurants in DC, or seek to create a memorable family dinner, we look forward to welcoming you to our home at Xiquet.
