Steps from the president's back yard, The Oval Room (get it?) serves up Mediterranean-inspired food to Washington's elite (Condoleezza says this place is her favorite) in a dark, contemporary setting full of modern and abstract art. If former presidents and secretaries of state are coming here to eat the seared duck breast, pepper crusted tuna, or pan roasted Amish chicken and peruse the long wine list, there couldn't possibly be a more official stamp of approval.
