This fall Buddha-Bar DC debuted a new lunch menu and extended its daytime hours from 11:30am to 2:30pm, prompting an influx of lunch customers from area businesses and government offices. Over the past several months, notables in attendance have run the gamut from media elites to high-profile business executives, District government leaders, D.C. sports stars, and top decision-makers within the West Wing.
“We are very pleased that Washington’s leaders consider Buddha-Bar DC a place to enjoy great food while conducting business,” says Mikhail Don, co-owner of Buddha-Bar DC. “Our aim is to provide our patrons with an elegant, comfortable environment, as well as a superb menu from which to choose from.”
Buddha-Bar DC’s new lunch menu readily lends itself to the sophisticated, “hungry” crowd. Appetizers include Big Eye Tuna Flatbread, Vietnamese Spring Rolls, and Rock Shrimp Tempura; Entrée Salads include a Thai Beef Salad and Green Papaya Salad with a choice of Duck or Shrimp; Main Courses include a Korobuta B.L.T., Korean B.B.Q., Kobe Beef Sliders, Japanese Sea Bass Tacos, and Buddha Bar Fish & Chips.
Additionally, the restaurant’s extensive sushi list is available at lunch, and showcases inventive rolls exclusive to Buddha-Bar DC. The restaurant also has a new “Happy Hour” menu featuring cocktail, beer, and wine specials.
