The Mayflower Club opened in the same building that used to house a prominent Prohibition-era speakeasy of the same name. The new two-level restaurant and lounge rounds fills out a complex at 1223 Connecticut Avenue NW.
Chef Alex Oradei complements Mayflower Club’s decadent decor with an 8-ounce prime strip steak encrusted in gold leaf and topped with shaved truffles. His steakhouse experience also comes across in a voluptuous burger and lamb chops.
Oradei plays up his Mediterranean roots by sending out canapé towers lined with bacon-wrapped dates, small cones of tuna tartare, and other elegant drinking snacks. The menu also features halloumi fries with harissa mayo, grilled octopus, branzino, and langoustine prawns with black rice and cream of saffron.

Dinner during restaurant week: we waited for 20+ min even with our reservation. Many other patrons were complaining of having to wait 30 min or longer. Once we got to the table it took forever to order our food. The food was good though. I understand that it’s Covid and that people are short staffed, but at the same time it felt like they overbooked on purpose (it’s also a club so maybe they don’t care if people have to wait?)
Great new find! Loved the décor and atmosphere. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent!
We were welcomed so warmly at the mayflower club. The recommendation the made were spot on and amazing. The food was delicious. The mayflower flambé was a fun presentation and delicious treat. Service was excellent and the ambience was great for a date night, very chic. We stopped by zeddies after dinner, for a fun way to end our evening. We look forward to returning.
