Belle of the Ball

Has your summer slipped by without trying Mirabelle? Frank Ruta's new spot beckons before Labor Day.
Aggie Chin's passion-fruit chocolate surprise

Chef Frank Ruta is having a great summer. His new resto, Mirabelle, has received the requisite kudos from all corners of the city, and the crowds have been strong. The former White House chef has created a menu that features favorites like coffee-rubbed turbot with rhubarb, Mirabelle eau de vie and fave beans. And pastry genius Aggie Chin follows suit with creativity, including her passion-fruit chocolate surprise. The duo’s homage to the City of Lights is memorable and smart—just like the people behind this gem. 900 16th St. NW, 202.506.3833
