Bistro 525


Bistro 525 delivers a true expression of Mid-Atlantic cuisine led by renowned Chef Mario Raymond since 2003. A Chesapeake native, Chef Raymond combines his East Coast upbringing with his Italian heritage to create fresh, locally sourced dishes.  Abiding by a deceptively simple approach, he has a deep-rooted respect for raw ingredients and works carefully to enhance the natural flavor in these dishes. Whether it is the classic crab cake, the fresh fish of the day, or the seasonal Mediterranean-style soups, Bistro 525 Washington, D.C. restaurant provides an authentic reflection of the flavors of the Mid-Atlantic.  Each dish tell a unique story. The restaurant is located in the glass atrium of the hotel and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, 7 days a week.
