Voted as ‘America’s Best New Chef’s 2005’ list by Food & Wine magazine in July, 2005, Eric Ziebold has established his culinary genius in Washington DC.
Designed by Tony Chi, one of the world’s most celebrated design visionaries, CityZen skillfully balances the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water.
Guest’s attention will first be drawn to the luxurious lounge at CityZen by dim candlelight and delightful cocktails. Guests can enjoy an extensive array of CityZen Martini Concoctions, classic cocktails and champagne drinks, and select from the city’s largest single malt whiskey collection or from an exclusive list of rare cognacs.
The open exhibition kitchen is the main focal point of the 20 foot-high ceiling restaurant. Here, Chef Eric Ziebold and his team will create a symphony of multi-course tasting menus and sublime dishes reflective of DC’s most triumphant new restaurant.

"This highly anticipated newcomer in the ultrachic Mandarin Oriental hotel showcases the pricey French-influenced, Cal-inspired cooking of chef Eric Ziebold (former chef de cuisine at Napa’s famed French Laundry) in three-, five- and occasionally seven-course prix fixe dinner menus; the earth-toned dining room is dramatic but inviting, and the sleek lounge, highlighted by a 30-ft. ‘wall of flames’ behind the bar, is a glam destination in its own right for sophisticated cocktails and an equally intriguing roster of dishes."
