2023 Best of Year Winner for Hotel Dining

Part of Hilton’s Curio Collection, The Morrow Hotel engaged New York–based INC Architecture & Design for its F&B spaces: Le Clou, a first-floor restaurant; Vesper, an 11th-floor cocktail lounge; and Upstairs, the rooftop bar—more than 19,000 square feet in total. The first, a modern take on the traditional French brasserie, features an open plan with both the kitchen and wine storage on show. Custom furniture is joined by leather banquettes and circular ceiling fixtures in a gold-tone setting for a luxe but contemporary feel. A midnight-blue palette, centered around plush-velvet lounge chairs and a bar clad in backlit onyx, establishes a sophisticated clubby vibe at Vesper. Taking its cues from the subtle spectrum of a sky at twilight, the penthouse bar frames unobstructed views of the Capitol dome with a wash of soft colors redolent of the magic hour.
