This bistro and lounge spot was inspired by DC-born soul singer and songwriter Marvin Gaye and the foods he encountered on his travels. Stop by the first-level dining room if you want to kick off your night with some food. Upstairs, the outdoor rooftop deck is a popular gathering place for those who like to sip on a drink while mingling with other patrons. Bask under the heated lamps on colder evenings, then venture inside where you can find a DJ spinning everything from R&B to new (and ‘90s) hip-hop on Friday and Saturday nights.
