“Mirabelle is a contemporary celebration of the American and French table offering refined fare from James Beard Award-winning Executive Chef Frank Ruta and Pastry Chef Aggie Chin. Influenced by modern American hospitality sensibilities, Mirabelle provides an inviting and sophisticated setting perfect for dining and entertaining in the heart of D.C.โ€™s bustling downtown neighborhood, just two blocks north of the White House.”

“The new concept by restaurateur Hakan Ilhan (Lโ€™Hommage Bistro Francais, Ottoman Taverna, Al Dente and Alba Osteria), showcases Ruta and Chinโ€™s approach to refined French fare and is intended to be a neighborhood gem and dining destination for any time of the day. It was at the White House where Ruta played an integral role on the kitchen team responsible for serving the First Families, world leaders and dignitaries under the Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush administrations.”
