Farm-to-Fork Georgetown Restaurant | Jardenea Restaurant and "The Lounge"

Experience creative "farm-to-fork" cuisine at Jardenea, located in the glamorously chic and art inspired Melrose Georgetown Hotel. At Jardenea, eating is an art form, and Executive Chef Nelson Erazo creates globally influenced cuisine made from the freshest organic and local ingredients. Our menus change with what's growing in season and reflect regional flavors. Even our name, Jardenea, from the French word for "garden", personifies freshness. Designed with a cool color palate, clean lines, bold patterns and dramatic artwork, Jardenea presents an inventive and intimate environment. With a communal table, fresh herb centerpieces and vintage plates, the dining room decor evokes a rustic modern feel. Glass-top and hardwood linen-less table tops support our environmental commitment, and our seasonal outdoor patio offers a natural, sky-lit ambiance.
Meet friends in the chic ambiance of "The Lounge" for artisan cocktails. The bartenders at "The Lounge" are passionate about the art of mixing cocktails, understanding that each libation is a work of art. Our handcrafted cocktail menu includes the Fresh Squeeze and Washington Ale, while martinis include the Spicy Politician and Mango Basilio. Enjoy the seasonal wine list and a bar menu of salads, sharing plates and cheese boards.
