Joselito is an homage to my late father, Jose Candon Perez who together with my mother, showed me that some of the best memories of life are created with family and friends over long, leisurely meals. Joselito is an intimate Spanish restaurant located on Capitol Hill, but reminiscent of the timeless establishments my father adored during his lifetime in Spain. These are also the cafes where luminaries such as Neruda, Hemingway, and Garcia Lorca spent countless hours eating, drinking, and enjoying the beauty of life. I invite you to do the same at Joselito. Looking forward to your visit, Javier
“Our new menus are divided into three distinct categories". Beyond our contemporary take on Spanish home cooking in the Modern Twists section, we are adding a section of classic Spanish dishes often requested by guests under Traditions. Innovations are inspired by both our own creative conversations and input from some of our customers who enjoy pushing gastronomic boundaries.
Award-winning Executive Chef David Sierra has also crafted Joselito’s new tasting menu, Evolution, from which parties of five or more must order, parties of four or less can order from our a la carte menu. This indulgent family-style feast with diverse dishes meant to be shared provides a memorable communal experience.
Joselito’s menus, much of which will change weekly, also include shareables, sides, sweets and of course a stellar selection of Spanish wines curated by GM and Sommelier Gustavo Iniesta.
I recently went to Joselito for a food tour. I've never been before, but it's really close to my home. We went there just for appetizers and drinks and it was our first stop. The cod fritters were awesome. My fiancé, who I went on the tour with, does not like seafood at all. But she enjoy the cod fitters and said it wasn't too fishy. The drinks were made pretty quickly and the staff was very friendly. Enjoyed my experience there.
I love this place! Everything we order was fantastic. I love their Arroz Caldoso de Pescados y Maricos and have been craving it again. Their mocktails are super yummy. I will be coming back to sample more of their menu.
This place is really quite special. Fantastic Spanish Tapas prepared with love and an upscale attention to detail, presentation, authenticity, and flavor profile. Cocktails are well-balanced, fun, and diverse. The service in this quaint cafe-like restaurant is top-notch. This place is a gem in the Eastern Market area.
Second time here. First time was for brunch and this time for dinner. Both times were excellent. Great service, great food, and great ambience. For dinner, I enjoyed the cod fritters and the egg & lump crab pasta with shrimp butter the most. Would definitely go again.
We're always on the lookout for something special. We were invited to a wine dinner, courtesy of Schneider's of Capitol Hill. Not a large restaurant, but sizeable enough to host 50-60 guests and intimate enough to make everyone feel at home.
This is a Spanish restaurant, and all the wines were from a single vintner. Their US rep was there, as was Terry Brown, Schneider's wine manager. We had a tasting menu. Food was fabulous and the wines provided good accompaniment, especially the reds.
Well worth the trip. We'll be back.
