The Pembroke opens at Dupont Circle Hotel

Cafe Dupont is now The Pembroke, having officially opened to the public last night after an extensive makeover of the space by interior designer Martin Brudnizki. The new interior features plush blue velvet semicircle banquettes, coral couches, brass light fixtures and hardware, marble tabletops and a 12-seat, 36' bar with leather swiveling barstools and a marble bar top.

The Pembroke's menu features culinary influences from Morocco, France, Italy, Ireland, and Spain, among other countries. Main courses include lamb shank tagine, grilled octopus, and Dover sole. Adult beverages include 10 cocktails and almost 70 wine selections from around the world.

Located in the Dupont Circle Hotel at 1500 New Hampshire Avenue, N.W., The Pembroke is open daily 6:00-11:00 AM for breakfast; 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM for weekday lunch; 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM for Saturday and Sunday brunch; and 5:00-10:00 PM for dinner (extended to 11:00 PM on weekends).
