First Bite: Decanter in the St. Regis
Tom Sietsema, The Washington Post | July 9, 2013

Just over a month after Alain Ducasse and the St. Regis parted ways and the lights dimmed in the globetrotting chef's Adour restaurant, diners are returning to the downtown hotel's dining room. The posh setting hasn't been touched; a baronial wood ceiling still hovers over a sea of white chairs and tables. Adour's chef, Ducasse acolyte Sebastien Rondier, is still in command of the kitchen. But his concise menu has switched allegiance from France to the Mediterranean, and the name above the door now announces Decanter, all but one of its letters in black.

Adour's replacement at the St. Regis takes a lighter approach, in both cost and cuisine
By Anna Spiegel, Washingtonian | June 24, 2013

A couple walk into a restaurant and order a flatbread and a $1,400 bottle of Château Haut-Brion. That's not the start of a joke—those guests were among the first at Decanter, the newly opened restaurant in the St. Regis Hotel. "Fine dining as we knew it is dead," says restaurant director Kerem Kendigelen. "People want to be more casual."
