Even More DC Restaurants for Cherry Blossom-Themed Events

I've already talked about DC restaurants getting into the Cherry Blossom Festival spirit by offering cherry-themed entrees, desserts and drinks. But the Festival attracts guests from all over, so I thought a post highlighting the restaurants located within Washington, DC hotels would be great for all the overnight groups.

Check out some of these on-site hotel restaurants with cherry-themed menus that will get your event guests into the Festival spirit before you even step out the door:

Cafe MoZU

Named after an ancient Chinese philosopher who touted the values of universal love, Cafe MoZU is equally suitable for a power lunch or a romantic dinner. Mixing bold yet clean flavors, the restaurant's international menu is now capped off by a cherry treat: mini chocolate-coated cones with warm cherry kirsch compote, cherry sorbet and minus 8 vinegar.

Located just off the main lobby of the 400-room Mandarin Oriental hotel in DC—which offers two ballrooms and seven meeting rooms—Cafe MoZU is a natural choice for Festival lodging and dining.

Bourbon Steak

Poached Hudson Valley foie gras with cherry blossoms, green almonds and Balinese long pepper is an unexpected way to celebrate the Festival at the popular Bourbon Steak restaurant. One of Michael Mina's eateries, Bourbon Steak also offers a modern menu full of his award-winning poached meat and poultry selections.

Bourbon Steak itself accommodates private events of up to 22 guests in its private dining room, while the Four Seasons Hotel in which it is located has several additional DC meeting rooms.


If all you need is a sweet finish to your celebration, look no further than Adour's cherry-flavored pink macaroons. Paired with a glass of wine from the restaurant's selection of over 400 varieties, this dessert is the perfect indulgence.

Up to eight guests can enjoy dessert, along with a selection of French dishes, in Adour's semi-private room before retiring to a room upstairs in the The St. Regis luxury hotel in Washington, DC.
