When you have a special occasion to celebrate, get all gussied up and head to the new Truluck’s on K Street. The chain has been around since 1992, but it only recently debuted a stunning new location near your front door. Just like the many sister eateries, this branch requires its patrons to adhere to an upscale dress code—it’s all in keeping with the standard set by the top-notch cuisine. For anyone who’d rather dress down, curbside takeout is also available.
No matter how you choose to dine, Truluck’s signature seafood dishes are bound to impress you. Start with a few appetizers like the jumbo shrimp cocktail with atomic cocktail sauce and the salt and pepper calamari with sweet Vietnamese chili sauce. Then savor a small second course, perhaps the lobster bisque or a fresh salad. Finally, devour a sustainably sourced main course, such as sesame-crusted Ahi tuna, South African lobster tail, or miso-glazed sea bass. Craving a steak? Truluck’s chef can sear a filet or prime ribeye to your exact specifications. Augment your meal with a libation like the Voila!, a cocktail featuring dry ice smoke, vodka, Cava, Chambord, pineapple juice, and fresh raspberries.
