Only 12 diners per night get to enjoy José Andrés' avant-garde Spanish boîte.
Vibe: With just six seats, the atmosphere can be summed up in one word: intimate.
Clientele: Beltway bigwigs (Antonin Scalia) and professional foodies (Anthony Bourdain).
Cuisine: A parade of delicate bites (even the salad course is tweezer-assembled) make it the American elBulli.
Reservations: Call at 10 every morning for roughly a month.
