Restaurant Advice for Date in Dupont Tonight!

Jacey Dec 22, 2006 07:10 PM

This will be the third date , but only the second time eating out together. I'm looking for something casual, healthy and pretty reasonable in Dupont area. I tend to like food that's Mediterrean-inspired, but I'm definitely open to anything (no Indian or Thai tonight).

Thanks for the advice

    The date in question is long past now, but Al Tiramisu has always struck me as a nice place for a romantic dinner. Quiet, cozy, intimate, terrific food.

      Tono Sushi. Been there three times. Not been disappointed.

        There are a lot of options:
        Mark & Orlando's - you can eat downstairs for a nicer "white tablecloth" experience or upstairs for something more casual

        Montsouris - French food, owners are the same as Montmartre, we had an excellent dinner there a couple of weeks ago.

        Hanks Oyster Bar is great, although a little loud sometimes.

        I also love Bistrot du Coin - although I know that many on this board disagree.

        Sette - Italian food - quite good.

        Good luck!

          Komi is one of the most expensive restaurants in the area.

          I would take a look at Skewers. The food is excellent. The atmosphere is really nice for a date, and it's casual enough to be comfortable.

          Good luck!

            Is Komi reasonably priced??
            What about Hanks Oyster Bar (I havent been yet tho)
            or Firefly (check out its price point too tho first on websight)
