Why locals love it

This two-floor homage to Marvin Gaye has a downstairs dining area featuring Southern-meets-Belgian dishes and an upstairs roof bar. With two floors, there is plenty of space to party. The menu features things like chicken-fried oysters, chickent and waffles, shrimp and grits, and moules and frites.

Why you should visit it

DC's native son, Marvin Gaye, is an important American figure to all. The menu blends his roots with his two year (self-imposed) exile to Belgium. Go upstairs for the lounge and bar area, where Motown and soul lovers can get down with local DJs, especially on Mondays which are exclusive for the cause.

Special tip

The line gets long on weekends so get there early, or come for a Monday soul night!
