The Michelin-starred Siren at The Darcy on Logan Circle is the latest venture of chef Robert Wiedmaier and chef/partner, Brian McBride - the preeminent fish and seafood restaurant in Washington, D.C., showcasing the freshest, highest-grade catches from around the world.

From Alaskan king crab to sweetly delicate sea urchin from Hokkaido, Japan, to the succulent fish and crustaceans swimming in the cool waters of the North Sea, no expense is spared at Siren to procure the world's very best.

In the kitchen, chef Wiedmaier's mission is to blend his classical French background with Japanese flavors and presentations. The result is an often exhilarating marriage of East and West.

The raw bar, with its gleaming, pristine display of the day's catch, is the focal point of the dining room - a place for diners to see what's in stock and build their meals accordingly. The stunningly dramatic and colorful seafood towers are a particular point of pride for the team at Siren, and many guests have been known to come to the restaurant simply to indulge in a triple-tiered extravaganza, whether in the dark and cozy lounge or on the tucked-away patio.

Design is a matter of deep importance to chef Wiedmaier, and at Siren great care has been taken to ensure a space that is as rich and detailed as the cuisine.

The lush, intimate dining room is a stylish evocation of the salty days of seafaring and the colorful, rough-and-tumble maritime life, from the brass-trimmed accents meant to suggest a captain's quarters to the fresh splashes of oceanic blue that reinforce the nautical theme. The artwork on the walls, meanwhile, draws both from folkloric depictions of mermaids and the tattoos of bygone sailing cultures.

Siren by RW opened in 2017 and was co-designed by Streetsense.
