Washington D.C.’s Best Kept Secret
Glover Park GRILL PATIO TERRACE
Heated outdoor patio serving coffee & pastries during the day and fine-dining at night.
The Terrace Patio
Intimate Space in The Great Outdoors
Glover Park Grill Terrace (or “The Deck” to some) has historically been a gathering spot for guests and neighborhood locals to meet and mingle, as connections have always been at the heart of the District of Columbia.
Because socializing looks very different right now and meet-ups with friends have moved outdoors regardless of the season, Glover Park Hotel Georgetown redesigned their Glover Park Grill Terrace to create an all-year dining space with covid guidelines in mind.
You will see dogs, kids, neighbors, people on laptops taking advantage of the strong WiFi, all mingling–while maintaining social distance–among the guests. The tables are spaced out, seating is limited, but still a comfortable spot to catch up with an old friend.

Executive Pastry Chef
Schlow Restaurant Group
After graduating from Yale and focusing on his career in management and finance, Alex Levin decided to leave the structure of corporate America and attend the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY to follow his passion in pastry. He graduated at the top of his class and trained in New York under industry-leading pastry chefs, including Johnny Iuzzini, Francisco Migoya and Noah Carroll at restaurants Jean Georges, Cafe Boulud and the Apple Pie Bakery Cafe.
In February 2017, Alex Levin joined Michael Schlow’s Schlow Restaurant Group as an executive pastry chef, where he leads, manages, and executes pastry programs at the company’s restaurants in Washington, DC, Boston, and New England area, Santa Fe and Los Angeles. His depth of expertise allows him the opportunity to develop pastry programs at American, Greek, Latin American, Italian and Spanish-inspired restaurants. His desserts have been heralded by numerous media outlets, including The Washington Post, Washingtonian, Food Network Magazine, and more.
Washingtonian’s “100 Very Best Restaurants 2015” issue described Alex as having developed “some of the loveliest sweets we’ve had this year”, while Zagat’s “6 DC Restaurants Where You Should Never Skip Dessert” feature, wrote that his creations are “almost too pretty to eat” – creating an “intricate ending” to the meal with “many layers and textures.”
Alex was selected by Eater for its 2015 class of Eater Young Guns, which aims to identify the most promising and up-and-coming talent in the restaurant industry. In 2016, Alex earned the title of Best Pastry Chef from the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington. He continues to impress guests with his sophisticated, modern riffs on classic desserts.
