Eat & Drink at The LINE
In order to protect the health and safety of our guests and employees, the LINE DC hotel, restaurants and bars are temporarily closed until further notice. Learn more.
With three restaurants, two bars, and a coffee shop (see also: in-room delivery), the LINE DC offers dining experiences at every hour of the day.
James Beard Award winner Spike Gjerde’s A Rake’s Progress is hyper-local and directly-sourced; Erik Bruner-Yang’s lobby-situated Brothers And Sisters and his Michelin Bib Gourmand-awarded Spoken English take cues from around the globe.
A Rake's Progress
At A Rake’s Progress, James Beard Award–winning chef Spike Gjerde cooks what he sources from Mid-Atlantic farms and waters. For the last decade at his Baltimore restaurant Woodberry Kitchen, Spike has been a learner and a teacher of the terroir of the region — only using ingredients found within his food system. Now in DC, he has an expanded landscape, with a flavor all its own. His kitchen is led by his longtime Executive Chef Opie Crooks.
A Rake’s Progress is accessibility-friendly.
A Rake's Bar
Led by Corey Polyoka, who created the James Beard Award–nominated bar program at Woodberry Kitchen, A Rake’s Bar showcases DC’s distillers and brewers and the bar’s own preserved ingredient arsenal. The hyper-seasonal drink menu is divided between innovative fruit- and herb-based cocktails, classics, and Rakehouse spirits: private barrel collaborations exclusive to the bar. A selection of farm beers and Maryland ciders are also available on tap. A raw bar and lounge menu is prepared by the chefs of A Rake’s Progress – no reservations required.
