Dining Specials and Events


Cherry Blossom-Inspired Cuisine at Westend Bistro
Indulge in Executive Pastry Chef John Quinn’s cherry blossom inspired, Sweet Sakura dessert featuring a sweet marriage of tart cherry mousse with yuzu and pandan leaf sorbet, tiny spheres of sake “caviar” and orange blossom meringue. Playing homage to the thousands of cherry trees that were brought over to Washington in 1912 as a sign of friendship from Japan, Chef Quinn was inspired by the history and tradition of the National Cherry Blossom Festival when creating the dessert.

Cherry Blossom "Sakura" Cocktail
Toast to the 2015 National Cherry Blossom Festival with Westend Bistro's cherry blossom-inspired 'Sakura' cocktail. The cocktail is a twist on the D.C. original cocktail, The Rickey, which was created in the 1880’s for D.C. lobbyist Colonel Joe Rickey at Shoomaker’s Bar. Westend Bistro’s refreshing twist on this classic cocktail features a house-made Sakura tea infused with G’Vine Gin, fresh lime juice, club soda and Sakura simple syrup.
