Food. Art. Fun.

Palette 22 is an exciting fusion of where food, art and fun meet.  Our lively neighborhood restaurant serves market-driven, globally-inspired small plates in a gallery-like setting. 

Enjoy live entertainment as local talent, including painters, jewelry-makers and sculptors, practice their crafts at the restaurant. Inspired by an industrial art gallery, guests are encouraged to interact with our in-house artists who are happy to discuss their works, which are available for purchase. 

A casual haven, our Shirlington location is open daily and offers indoor and outdoor seating.  Enjoy several dining options including our special Palette Passport dining experience, a late-night menu, and a not-to-be-missed bottomless brunch available on Saturdays and Sundays.  Our comfortable and stylish bar is the place to gather for happy hour and to enjoy our award-winning signature sangria or craft cocktails perfect for the season.
