Good Place for a Graduation?
My Fiancee is (finally!) graduating from grad school in DC. I have been given the task of finding the restaurant for the celebratory dinner to follow.
There will be about 9 people, and the request is for something nice with plenty of "simpler" options in the District itself. There are a couple members of the family who are not as adventurous. I am trying to stay out of Georgetown because I feel like there is so much more to DC cuisine-wise that we need to make the fam spread their wings a bit. However, if there are strong feelings on any particular place, I will definitely check it out!
Thanks so much for your help!!!
Ate at Red Sage in Downtown DC last weekend. Large enough to handle your party and worth checking out. Probably a bit pricey for regular visits, but not so for special occasions. You can find a menu online by looking them up on Yahoo.
Old Ebbitt might be nice if you have a lot of out-of-town family - it has a nice "DC" feel. Red Sage is a good call too. If they like fish, I am a fan of the M&S Grill (offshoot of McCormick and Shmidt) on F Street.
Have you thought of some of the nice places in Cleveland Park, like Amernick or Bardeo? That might be a nice neighborhood to explore. I haven't eaten at these place but they might be fun. Or one of the better Italian places in town.
