More than just food, Poste is a dining experience. Renowned for our family-style Poste Roasts and picturesque courtyard garden, our chef-driven Penn Quarter restaurant blends the traditional with the modern, infusing French brasserie cuisine with updated American twists – a pinch from the Chef’s garden here, a dash from a local farm there – all in the historic setting of the 1841 General Post Office building. Whether meeting friends for one of mixologist Jason Wiles’ cheekily named craft cocktails or enjoying a meal with Chef Marron’s famous truffle frites, you’ll see why Poste has become a favorite Penn Quarter destination for everyone from young professionals to seasoned politicians.

Poste Moderne Brasserie is located inside the Hotel Monaco; a historic space where our open, buzzing dining area stands in place of the General Post Office’s former mail sorting room (look up for traces of history – the crown molding and sunny skylights are all original). Conveniently located in Washington, D.C.’s Penn Quarter neighborhood, Poste restaurant is a top choice for pre-theater dining, situated near Ford’s Theater and other theater district destinations as well as the Washington Convention Center, the Verizon Center and many of Washington’s best museums.
