Dauphine’s is the newest restaurant concept from Long Shot Hospitality, the team behind Washington, D.C.’s beloved restaurant, The Salt Line. Led by critically acclaimed Chef Kristen Essig, Dauphine’s is inspired by the playful spirit and iconic cuisine of New Orleans. Dauphine’s is located within Washington, D.C.’s Midtown Center, a new development at the site of the former The Washington Post building at 15th and L Streets NW. Chef Essig will work closely with Long Shot Hospitality Chef/Partner Kyle Bailey to utilize Mid-Atlantic ingredients to prepare classic Louisiana fare while also creating original dishes inspired by the city of New Orleans. At Dauphine’s, guests can expect an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere, complete with subtle New Orleans influences that create a transportive experience.
