We've not been back here in awhile and I wanted to focus an event on quality, fresh seafood.

Well, I'm taking you to one of my "below-the-radar" places where I get quality seafood meals & casual dining ... tucked away in Dupont Circle no less! It's been a couple of years since we've last come here [to great reviews], so will be introducing newer members to Pesce.

Don't worry carnivores, there's a nice steak on the menu if seafood's not your thing

FOOD: French Bistro w/ high-quality [almost exclusive] focus on Seafood. Menu choices change daily [just what's in season], & is presented on chalkboard at the table! Roasted / Grilled / Pan-Oven fried ... usually all the styles are represented. Nice reasonably-priced wine selection by the glass ( And good service as well.

Oh, as stated above: carnivores, no worries. Pesce does offer a Steak option on the menu

--> Checkout a recent dinner menu ( (subject to availability)

SPACE: Casual French Bistro. Very cozy & whimsical decorations, place may only seat about 50 folks max


==> Tax/Tip combo is our required 30% tax/tip policy ( see the FAQs ( for more details)
==> Limited to 16 slots

See you there!



CLOSEST METRO: Dupont Circle [Red Line]. Quick 2 block walk from the Metro. Get on P Street from the Circle, the restaurant will be on your left.

For directions using the Metro, try using the Trip Planner at the WMATA website (

UPDATE: There's valet parking $8. Also limited street parking in Dupont Circle/P St. area, but not impossible [pssst, try Mass Ave near 21st or Connecticut]. Do recommend Metro if convenient!

Need to Contact the Restaurant? [i.e. confirm location, notify to the group if running late, etc.]. Text on your phone to 466453 (GOOGLE) and type the restaurant name + the city/state in the message body. Google Business Services ( will text you back with the address and phone #!


1. Limited to 16 slots.

2. If you RSVP "YES" please make sure you can definitely make it. With 3,800+ members and limited seating, we cannot afford no-shows. It's unfair to the other members who would like to attend and also to the organizers who have to explain to the restaurant why the reserved # of guests didn't show (can damage our reputation). No-Show rules apply (

3. Event already full?, waitlist for the event!. Use the Waitlist option (the Organizer for each event will enable this as needed). Also, check back regularly as attendees have been known to cancel up to Noon the day of the event.

4. Billing (add 30% tax/tip to your bill). Remember, include the required 30% for tip / tax in addition to the food / beverages you order as defined in our FAQs (

5. NEW MEMBERS or 1st TIME EVENT GO-ERS, if you have questions about the group, RSVPs, or the overall dining event process, visit our FAQs ( and our No-Show Policy (
