I enjoyed lunch at Art&Soul, the food was good and the service was great. But the tables and chairs look over-worn, as if it was a college cafeteria. The BLT is delicious with a sweet/savory mix. But the fried green tomato in my sandwich was...More

Our kitchen serves simple, honest food that reflects a devotion to quality and responsibility made possible by partnerships with like-minded farmers, artisans and growers who provide products that are sustainably sourced, whenever possible. Helmed by Executive Chef Douglas Alexander, Art and Soul exudes true warmth and hospitality. Playful regional elements such as hand-painted farm signs and traditional folk art are also used throughout the space in honor of the D.C. restaurant's regional influences. In warmer weather, an expansive front patio provides an al fresco dining option with a fire-pit and grill.
