Ideas for best DC dining experience for gift to a couple

lbs9 Jun 28, 2006 12:21 AM

Trying to give a gift certificate to a couple who has everything, and is in DC from Central American for the month. They just had a baby, so the place should be a nice getaway. High end food and service, something to brag about when they get back home as the place to visit. Haven't lived in DC for a few years, so I am at a loss. Something on par with Inn at Little Washington, but where you can actually get a reservation within the month.

        Eve or Komi or Obelisk.

          In would say Citronelle, or possibly CityZen.

              I agree with the Maestro/Ritz Carlton and Citronelle/Latham reccos. But expect to cough up a lung to pay for it all.
