Stable, Washington DC’s first Swiss-American restaurant, is the perfect choice for couples looking to buck the trend this Valentine’s Day.  Instead of the usual pricey prix-fixe menus and aphrodisiac-filled dishes opt for a uniquely European experience at one of the city’s most intriguing restaurants.  Stable boasts an effortlessly romantic, “après ski” vibe that’s perfect for any date night.  Exposed brick, blonde wood and pillow-lined banquettes create a cozy backdrop for you and your loved one to enjoy a memorable meal (and each other’s company!)


Co-owner Silvan Kraemer recommends kicking off your Valentine’s Day celebration with one of Stable’s original craft cocktails like the Manhattino Svizzera (Kopper Kettle Bourbon, Walnut Brandy, Kirsch & Lillet Rouge) or the Dirty Shirly (Civic Vodka, My Amaretto, Stable Cherry Liquor and Lemon Juice.)  Feeling a bit adventurous?  Order up Stable’s Traditional Absinthe Service for something really special.


When it’s time to dine indulge in shareable items like Traditional Swiss Cheese Fondue (a blend of Schlossberger Old, Schlossberger Young and Vacherin Cheese cooked with Garlic, White Wine and served with housemade White Bread for dipping,) Chicken Liver Pate with Apple Chutney and Wurzel Bread or Landjäger – a cured and smoked Swiss-style salami served with Mustard and Pickles.

Entrée’s on Chef David Fritsche’s current menu include items like Pan Seared Scallops with Cranberry Knödel, Swiss Chard, Lemon and Cranberry Jus along with Swiss classics like Venison Loin served with Spätzli, Braised Red Cabbage and Caramelized Chestnuts.
