Exuding French café culture, Le Diplomate is an eye-catching destination on the corner of very busy 14th and Q streets NW, where legendary resturateur Steven Starr of STARR Restaurants sought to transform an old laundromat into a truly authentic and stunning Parisian-inspired brasserie. WINMAR was the contractor of choice for realizing the restaurateur’s vision of an authentic, comfortable, vibrant, enchanting, and iconic French dining destination. From the zinc-topped bar, to the flooring detail, from the various dining room areas with detailed millwork and an array of traditional brasserie lighting and accent elements, the level of detail makes the space feel as if it’s been there for more than 50 years. The year-round patio and outdoor dining rooms are replete with heating and cooling capabilities, offering dozens more guests the opportunity to experience Chef Starr’s 4-star dining experience.
