Located in the Shaw neighborhood, this unique eatery is named after Marvin Gaye and is inspired by the time he spent in the Belgian town of Ostend. Chef James Claudio has created a menu that skillfully combines the cuisine of Belgium and the American South, and signature dishes include the Belgian moulles-frites and the fried chicken with Belgian waffles. The restaurant has a heated rooftop area serving more than 30 beers and a lounge offering cocktails and wine. The atmosphere is enlivened by jazz and soul music selected by Thievery Corporation’s Eric Hilton.

Insider Tip:

Opened year-round, the rooftop is a popular spot with beer lovers looking to sample something new. The selection includes more than 30 Belgian ales and blondes.
