This restaurant, just a few minutes from the Senate side of the Capitol, attracts a fair number of politicians. Styled after a saloon, but very upscale in its rendition, The Monocle has a handsome bar with wood-and-brass accents. It is open to the public only during the week; on weekends it is reserved for private parties. American fare is served here, with seafood and steaks dominating the menu. A variety of pasta entrees are also offered, dressed in light sauces.
