Chef Geoff’s has two locations in DC: 3201 New Mexico Ave., NW and 1301 Pennsylvania Ave., NW. Both restaurants are similar but the main difference is that the uptown location is more of a neighborhood feel and has a large outdoor seating area. If you are downtown looking to catch a sports game without dealing with the ESPNZone or Chinatown crowds, you can always count on Chef Geoff’s.
Cost – $$
Service – B
Friendly and prompt service but can get hectic, as with most restaurants, during Sunday brunch. Bartenders are pretty down to earth and personable as well.
Food – B
Pretty seasonal menu with a wide-variety of choices. The happy hour burgers and pizza are two of the best deals in town. Monday nights are 1/2 price bottles of wine.
Decor – B
Traditional with lots of wood. – pretty typical decor for an American restaurant.
Feel – B
The uptown location has a better feel with all of the locals. Both offer a decent Sunday jazz brunch.
