LIMA (or Lime) represents a winning trifecta of cuisine, design and ambiance. It transcends the typical hybrid restaurant, lounge and bar concept, so in vogue these days in contemporary dining, to further its ambition as a true destination restaurant. One that seamlessly blends fine dining, experimental cuisine, and inspired design in a rich social context.
Boasting a prime “East End” address at 1401 K Street NW, LIMA is centrally located in downtown Washington with a visible presence on the bustling 14th and K Street intersection. Its unique three level interior is open yet intimate, separating each tier into fine dining (top level), bar and waiting area (middle level), and an upscale lounge (lower level). The lounge will feature its own menu, table and bottle service, resident and guest DJs, and a banquet table for private events.
Bridging borders its Latin-infused international cuisine created by Chef Raynold Mendizabal tantalizes the palette with an array of sensual and savory dishes in a sophisticated technique. Enticing offerings of Ceviche, Tiradito, and Raw Shellfish compliment these signature dishes. In addition, fresh alternatives will be provided on a seasonal basis as well as weekly chef specials. “Lime accents a third of the menu in a subtle way” remarks Mendizabal. “Latin flavors dominate but do not overpower, they simply touch each plate.”
From the modern forms of its structure to its eclectic cuisine, LIMA balances all the elements to enhance your dining pleasure.
