The José Andrés universe is full of restaurants supplying mediocre food to business types and families. But Minibar in Penn Quarter is the exception. This fine dining spot serves an incredible tasting menu, mostly to people celebrating birthdays or special occasions. There are only 12 seats at the communal kitchen table, where you’ll watch the chefs plate dishes like beef-consomme soaked egg yolk and pork bánh mì on a kimchi meringue bun. At $325 per person, the dinner is not cheap—there's even a $500 bespoke wine pairing. But we’d gladly spend our own money here for an anniversary or a meal that gets talked about for years to come. We can’t say the same about any other José Andrés spot.
