Little Pearl

An Approachable, Michelin Starred Lunch in A Family Friendly Cafe

Source: Little Pearl

Little Pearl earned a Michelin star in 2020, and it came as little surprise with inventive, fresh dishes from the same team who dreams up dinners at Rose’s Luxury and 2 Michelin star Pineapple and Pearls. Located in a picturesque carriage house just north of the Capitol, the laid back vibe and patio seating make this restaurant approachable and family friendly.

What To Eat The menu evolves seasonally, with kid-friendly options like a sourdough grilled cheese of Tickler cheddar and Comté  and the LP Jr. Cheesburger in the mix.  The spicy chicken sandwich is a must-try, along with the farro & arugula salad laden with lamb sausage and creamy yogurt. Don’t miss the medium rare chocolate chip cookie.


Pipsqueak Tip Visit for lunch (ends at 2:30) and snag a table on the patio, where you’ll see other families and strollers parked for a meal. The cafe does not accept reservations.
