New Light Menu by Jean-Georges at P.O.V. Lounge at W Hotel Washington DC
February 17, 2011By: Mary Winston Nicklin
W Hotel Washington DCThe W Hotel's Point of View roof terrace and lounge has long attracted the cool kids for some of D.C.'s best cocktails and a happening scene. Not to mention the views over the nation's capital. This is how The Washington Post describes the vista:

"And even if, like most Washingtonians, the city's monuments are little more than markers that measure your commute, the new W Hotel's Point of View Bar might give you a new outlook. From the 11th-floor balcony at 15th St and Pennsylvania Ave, Washington is spread out before you. The Lincoln Memorial seems like it's set amid a forest, and from one of the low-slung lounge tables at the far end, you feel like you could reach out and touch the Washington Monument. The White House's East Wing is only a block away, and at sunset, it lights up like a gold-tinged jewel box. From almost any spot at the railing, you can watch planes take off from Reagan National Airport or see the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery and Old Town Alexandria."

News for foodies: The rooftop lounge has just launched a light-fare menu by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The good folks at Daily Candy suggest ordering up a "thin-crust pizza topped with truffle and fontina; wild mushroom and goat cheese; or the classic mozzarella, tomato, and basil ($12-$21)."
