Job Details
THE RESTAURANT

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 its modern Spanish cuisine that showcases the finest products from around the world, 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.

A meal at Xiquet consists of a 14-course culinary experience that begins with tantalizing canapés and aperitivos at the Chef’s Counter on the first level. 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. The experience concludes in our elegant mezzanine lounge with after-dinner drinks and special treats.
