About

A contemporary Latin-American inspired restaurant in Washington's historic Colorado Building, Ceiba has been sizzling since it opened in 2003. The name "Ceiba" pays tribute to the imposing umbrella-shaped tree found throughout the new-world tropics, and the menu draws inspiration from the Yucatan (Veracruz and Cancun), Brazil (Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro), Peru, and Cuba.

The extensive travels of chef Jeff Tunks and his partners through these regions are reflected in Ceiba's menu, presentation, and dramatic d├ęcor. An alluring lounge sprawling through the first two rooms of the restaurant is ideal for mixing dining and entertaining with cocktails and savory appetizers any time of day.

Ceiba was voted "Best New Restaurant" by the readers of Washingtonian magazine

Editorial Reviews

Review - Ceiba - Washington, DC
Tom Sietsema, Washington Post Magazine | October 16, 2005

One waiter shows up with a stone bowl containing a bubbling mass of cheese, beef strips and velvety poblano peppers, trailed by another carrying an earthenware dish of warm tortillas. Curious diners on both sides of me lean in and ask what I've ordered. "Queso fundido," I tell them as I dig into one of the many crowd-pleasers at Ceiba (pronounced SAY-bah).
