The D.C. Reservations You’ll Want to Access in Fall 2022


As fall arrives in D.C. and we shift into the collective wistfulness for lost residual daylight hours, there is still always a tinge of excitement. In this town, things heat up when the weather starts to cool down.

As Q4 business dinners pepper our calendars and we squeeze in face time with friends, the District is flush with options to help ease you into autumn. And in a town where access is everything, we’d be remiss if we didn’t let you in on some of the latest restaurants to join Global Dining Access by Resy, which provides exclusive access and opportunities to American Express premium cardmembers.

This debut round-up of Dining Access options in D.C. celebrates places that leave indelible marks on diners’ hearts. (Pro tip: Always keep an eye on our full list for the latest additions.) From the vibrant Modern Indian cuisine at Rasika, to the irrefutable Italian of Centrolina, there’s a memorable experience to have at every turn — or in the case of Tiger Fork, an unassuming alley. Check out the selections below, and clear your schedule. There’s great dining to be done.
