Minibar, Laboratorio or Obelisk?

  • 4

Will be in DC for a few days in March and am looking to "splurge" one night. Bottom line - we love food, but are also interested in the overall experience. Minibar sounds great, as does Laboratorio, and on the more traditional side, Obelisk. It is so hard to choose! Help!

  1. Laboratorio is closed right now. Roberto Donna is at Bebo is Pentagon Row/Crystal City.

    1. It is difficult to compare the Minibar to Obelisk as they are such totally different experiences. However, if you have never been there, try the Minibar [make reservations a full month in advance]. Obelisk is outstanding Italian food but there are others. There is nothing else like the Minibar in Washington and few like it anywhere.

      1. I'd skip minibar- it's unique but not in a good way. I'd really head over to Obelisk. You might consider Vidalia or 2941 as well for amazine eating experiences.

        1. Thanks for the advice!
