Welcome to The Gryphon, Washington DC’s premier destination social house. The Gryphon DC features an assortment of premium aged meats, a full raw bar and specially crafted cocktails to accompany the “something for everyone” dining atmosphere.
Their philosophy at the Gryphon is that the dining experience is incomplete without the presence of friends, family and neighbors. They believe that the engagement of both food and drinks are the very fabric of what ties us all together, and that they are each connected to one another through food and drink.
To accompany such an idealistic approach, they’ve placed great emphasis on two things: Preparation and Presentation.
Although, not a traditional steakhouse, both, their wet and dry aged beefs are aged on premise, ultimately cured, grilled, broiled or roasted to perfection. That same type of preparation applies to their select pork, lamb and seafood dishes as well. In addition to their signature meats, their menu consist of an oyster based raw bar, featuring the freshest shrimp, lobster and clams.
Whether on a date for two, or in a group setting, their social house concept provides guests with a plated-to-share experience with “pre-cut” meats designed for smaller portioned upscale meals with unparalleled tastings and pairings.
As DC’s premier social house, the Gryphon encourages its guest to socialize through eating and drinking, while we provide a lively, energetic and fun atmosphere. Their goal is to make their guest feel as if they have been invited to a well planned neighborhood dinner party with close friends and family. This is why they consider ourselves an all-in-one destination, perfect for any occasion.
