The Square | Now Open

What’s the common ground between culture, cuisine, and curiosity? The Square. Where chefs and creators come together to serve up an experience you’ve never tasted before.

About The Square

Some markets are merely historic. The Square makes history. Located in a light-filled oasis beneath International Square’s brilliant glass atrium, DC's newest culinary landmark assembles today’s boldest flavors alongside the city’s emerging culture of tomorrow.


Chef-Driven From the Top Down

After a lifetime of experience in the world’s most loved kitchens, Chefs Richie Brandenburg and Rubén García make their mark on the city that defined them.

More About The Square

The name ‘The Square’ comes from ‘town square’ — a gathering place, a place where knowledge is shared, and where community happens.
