MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Kinship is a prominent fixture in DC’s culinary scene, thanks to Chef Eric Ziebold and wife/partner Célia Laurent’s inspired cuisine. They have earned a devoted following of urbane gastronomes and locals who gladly dress to dine here, making it feel like more of an occasion. The location across from The Walter E. Washington Convention Center belies its style, which is airy and sophisticated. In addition to Métier downstairs, the three-part space comprises a book-lined and fireplace-warmed lounge, lively bar and minimalist-chic dining room, all crafted by local designer, Darryl Carter. The à la carte isn't just a laundry list of offerings; it's a peek inside Chef Ziebold's heart and mind. While selections from the "Ingredients" and "Indulgence" categories need no explanation, "Craft" items honor tradition and "History" selections pay tribute to sentimental favorites. Pick and choose from the different themes for a bespoke tasting menu of veal paupiette, folded with a purée of cardoons and braised in a rich veal stock. Diners are encouraged to save the best for last, with desserts like an Opéra cake, presented as a layered square of light and dark chocolate cake, mousse and almond feuilletine.
