The Riggsby is a classic. It’s intimate, nostalgic, a little lost in time, cozy, kind of refined, yet definitely playful. The Riggsby is part of the neighborhood. It’s the “go to” place, where the bartender treats you like you’ve been coming in for years, even if it’s your first time stopping by.  


The menu at The Riggsby is American with a flash of “Old School Continental."

It’s seasonal.

It’s delicious.

It’s well-executed, with a little something for everyone.


Named for the street that intersects the restaurant, Riggs Place, and nodding to the former Riggs Bank, The Riggsby is Chef Michael Schlow’s second DC restaurant, featuring upscale American cuisine with distinctly European influences.
