Welcome To
Iron Gate

by chef anthony chittum

Iron Gate, located near Dupont Circle, stands as one of the district’s oldest continuously operating restaurants and is split between a sumptuous dining room, a wisteria covered patio and a handsomely enclosed carriageway that houses the bar.


Chef Anthony Chittum, a native of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and his team have revitalized the space with a menu that takes inspiration for the cuisines of Greece, Sicily, Sardinian and Southern Italy, interpreting those traditions and techniques using the finest products and seasonal ingredients of the Mid-Atlantic.


Iron Gate also serves as an idyllic oasis for fine private events both large and small, so please consider us when planning your next fête, we'd love to have you as our guests.

Dinner served Monday through Thursday from 5:30 until 10, Friday and Saturday from 5:30 until 11, and Sunday from 5:30 until 9

Lunch served Tuesday through Friday 11:30 until 2:00

Brunch served Saturday & Sunday from 11:00 until 2:00
