Private Dining Options
Dining at Equinox is a regional and seasonal experience. Chef Gray has remained true to his roots of the mid-Atlantic region by embracing local products with traditional techniques inspired by his French and Italian training with a modern flair. Thanks to a recent renovation, Equinox’s décor compliments the cuisine by combining fresh colors and clean lines with a crisp, modern atmosphere that firmly establishes a city chic décor. As simple and elegant as the dining rooms, the cuisine at Equinox compliments its environment in its mission for simplicity and purity. There are six distinct dining areas: the Atrium, the Front Atrium, the Main Dining Room, the Private Wine Room, the Patio and the Bar.
Private Wine Room
Just off the main dining room and can be closed off completely for smaller private affairs up to 12. Wines lining the wall provide the atmosphere of dining in an exclusive cellar with warm and romantic lighting.
main dining room
Generally a little quieter and offers an atmosphere that encourages a leisurely dinner or a quick power lunch. The booths and smaller tables can be more intimate, though larger parties can also be accommodated in the space.
Set right on the street to allow guests to experience the restaurant’s close proximity to the White House and other DC landmarks. The fireplace and textured glass provide naturalistic elements to create an urban feeling in the space. The atrium is open all year long and can be reserved as a private dining area, which can accommodate small and large parties up to 65 people.
The Patio is a casual yet elegant space for private dining and cocktail receptions. Diners on the Patio can relax outside while enjoying a quiet meal in the heart of downtown DC.
The Bar offers a more business casual environment. Most diners sit at the bar and nosh from the special bar menu as well as brush up on their understanding of the diverse wines offered at Equinox. Equinox bartenders and wait staff are known for their wine knowledge and can enhance any bar or dining experience.
