Housed inside the 1841 General Post Office building, Poste Moderne Brasserie serves updated American cuisine in an environmentally-friendly atmosphere. The restaurant uses vegetables and herbs from an organic garden, serves organic coffee, and practices composting. Thanks to an on-site water filtration system, bottled water has been completely eliminated from the restaurant. Diners can choose from a number of freshly prepared entrées, including local goat cheese ravioli and hanger steak frites. A happy hour is held daily from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m., and pre-theater dining is available.

Insider Tip:

Chef Rob Weland hosts market to market dinners, in which he accompanies diners to the Penn Quarter Farmers’ Market, helps them purchase ingredients, and then prepares a meal from their selections.
