Marticks, Joy America or Ruby Lounge?

Stacy Jul 9, 2001 10:54 AM

Looking for recommendations for a birthday dinner. I'm considering Marticks, Joy America and the Ruby Lounge - I've never been to any of them.

I'm not interested in any place too stuffy or food that is heavy.

Any suggestions/recommendations?

    Since Dupont Circle is a bit of a hike from Baltimore ;) I would probably go with Ruby. The food quality among th three is comparable, but Ruby is hip and more affordable. Martick's can be cool too, but it is pretty dark in there.

      Mimi's in Dupont Circle might be a good place for a birthday. The waiters/waitresses sing. It's a bit loud but if you have a big crowd it could be alot of fun.
