Chinatown, Washington, DC –
Despite its location on the northern edge of Chinatown, PS 7’s is a distinctly American eatery, presenting hot dogs the way other upscale venues might treat filet mignon, and serving up peanut butter banana sandwiches with an aplomb commonly reserved for crème brûlée.
Corporate Washingtonians step through the glass doors on their way to client meetings and luncheons, following the undulating blue hallway into a sparsely decorated modern dining room.
Velvet chairs and candlelit tables provide comfy digs for young professionals eagerly perusing the seasonal menu for delectable small bites, or sticking with signature plates like petite franks and onion rings with bacon.
Above their heads hangs a large art piece reminiscent of a wave, which appears to wash through the open room toward the sheer curtains in the back that hide a private dining area.
The after-work crowd tends to congregate in the lounge on the other side of the restaurant, where local politicians and lawyers unwind with hand-crafted cocktails at the small bar, and casual groups settle into love seats and sofa chairs with plates of doughnut cakes or chocolate parfait infused with peppermint foam.
Whether stopping in for solid Happy Hour deals, fabulous desserts, or diner food with a gourmet twist, patrons at PS 7’s will be pleasantly surprised.
Young professionals, casual after-work groups, sophisticated business types, politicians, and anyone looking to sample creative cuisine and cocktails, mid-20s to 40+.
