Last month Charlie Palmer Steak DC debuted a complete interior and menu refresh.

Chef Charlie Palmer tasked lead bartender Lamar Lusk to makeover the Capitol Hill restaurant’s cocktail program, resulting in a new cocktail list that both excites the spirit connoisseur and satisfies a conservative cocktail consumer.
