  1. Go directly to Cafe Milano. Hollywood meets DC. You'll love it. But don't show up before 9PM or you'll be eating by yourselves.

      Enjoyed Cafe Milano when I lived in DC - food surprisingly good - but if you don't want to break the bank, make sure you know the prices of specials and don't let them pour Pelligrino endlessly.

    2. Bar Pilar has an eclectic crowd, good bartenders, and a decent tapas menu. Slightly less crowded on Fridays than the usual Dupont/Bethseda places.

      1. For Bethesda, Jaleo is the best choice for good affordable tapas, hip fun atmosphere, and checking out guys.
