Explore the intersections of Spanish and Japanese cuisine at Cranes, a restaurant and sake lounge by chef Pepe Moncayo. Chef Pepe’s contemporary dishes spotlight the similarities he has found with the ingredients, techniques and culinary viewpoints of Japan and Spain. From cooking style to ingredient and flavor combinations, his Spanish Kaiseki is a natural cultural and culinary marriage.

The design of the 12,000 square foot restaurant space includes a beautifully striking bar, large sake lounge, raised dining area, open kitchen, and private dining room suitable for 30 guests. The sleek, modern, yet approachable space draws on the chef’s Spanish and Japanese influences. Bright polished metals and thoughtfully placed wood elements layer amongst dark textures and dramatic lighting.

    Delicious food! Besides the steamed mussels (came undercooked) and one of our orders forgotten, the rest of the dishes were delicious and made up for mishaps!

    I had my graduation dinner with my family at Cranes and we all had a great time! Although the Omakase menu was secret, we loved everything that was served to us! We were very full and satisfied after. It actually exceeded all our expectations. It was just perfect! Thank you so much for the marvelous dinner. We would love to come back next time. :)

    Place is nice. Food was good. But not deserving of the hype and not in the same category as the best of DC. High expectations were not met. But the food was fresh and tasted fine. Just not a “wow” experience.

    The tasting menu was so dilated it took over 3 hours with inattentive service. Food was good but not Michelin-good and fairly uneven. Outdoor seating in a loud alley and fairly uncharming.
