Restaurant's World Cup Menu Brings the Flavors of Brazil to D.C.'s Foggy Bottom

Its Combination of Soccer and Savory Fare Makes the Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle Hotel a Winner Among World Cup Fans

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Watching the 2014 FIFA World Cup can happen anywhere. Fans can catch the games at home, or share the highs and lows with friends in a casual get-together. Or they can immerse themselves in the experience at the Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle Hotel. True to the Renaissance ethos, this property offers a comprehensive approach to enjoying the World Cup thanks to Executive Chef Devon Capili's Brazilian-inspired masterpieces and the large-screen television in the hotel's lobby lounge. Guests may not be in Brazil, but the hotel's Foggy Bottom restaurant menu will get them feeling like they are.

Available for the duration of the World Cup (June 9 to July 13, 2014), the Brazilian specials make dining near Dupont Circle even more exciting than usual. Guests can taste the flavors of South America in two ways. Diners who bite into the empanadillas ($12) will taste delicately seasoned beef and vegetables wrapped in house-made turnovers and paired with salsa verde. Or they can savor shrimp sautéed in garlic, parsley and a white-wine sauce in the camarao ao alho e oleo ($13).

Of course, there's a reason why the hotel's M Bar is among the most innovative restaurants in Foggy Bottom, and that is its unique combination of fearlessness and authenticity. Chef Capili's Brazilian-inspired specialty cocktails abide by these principles in the most mouthwatering of ways. To complement the special menu, Chef Capili has concocted two limited-edition drinks. The first, the caipirinha ($10), is a classic that's been around for more than 200 years and is now expertly mixed here with Leblon cachaca, simple syrup and lime. The second is the Brazilian Cure ($12), which features Leblon cachaca, VeeV Acai Spirit, Grand Marnier, simple syrup and acai juice.

After selecting a drink and dish, guests can relax in the sleek lounge to watch the World Cup on the big screen. Few restaurants near Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. can offer the comfort and flexibility (not to mention the seasonal and locally-sourced menu) available in the hotel's lobby lounge.

Between the drinks, the food and the game, this boutique hotel gets guests as close to the action as possible from Washington, D.C. And with amenities that are as comfortable as they are stylish, soccer fans may just prefer the view from Dupont Circle to that of anywhere else.
