Dinner in Bethesda
I am being taken out for dinner tonight in Bethesda. Any particular recommendations for places I should either go or avoid?

Yes, I was, but someone has offered to take me out in Bethesda tonight, so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I do love Indian food, so thank you.
I disagree with the pizza at Mia's and Passage to India.. both these places dissapointed me. But I can't speak on the other recs from Chocolate Chic pea
Lots of choices in Bethesda, depending on what you're looking for, of course.
-Jaleo (love the white gazpacho)
-Mia's (casual, but really good pizza)
Haven't been to yet but have heard good things about
Personally, I would avoid
-Mon Ami Gabi (overpriced, unhelpful etc)
-Houstons (they're everywhere)
-whatever the New Orleans place is on Cordell
There are many more choices in between, but those are a few off the top of my head. Hope you have fun tonight wherever you go!
I'll second Persimmon...I've only been there once, and it was before going to a movie, but the food was excellent. For the life of me, I can't remember what I ordered but I do remember that it was definitely a gem of a place in Bethesda.
I also REALLY liked Mia's...I know it doesn't get great reviews, but I thought the pizza was great, the service was fine - excellent beer selection too.
To repeat some of the others, I frequent:
Passage to India
But I think the best cooking in Bethesda by a good margin right now is at David Craig.
I was at Centro last weekend, and really had a good time. My food was good-to-great, but not outstanding, but the service was really fantastic (our server's name was Michael), and the recommended wine was great (but expensive). The mussels appetizer was really unbelievably good, as was the chocolate and banana crepe dessert. The stratacelli (filet mignon with greens) was good, the chocolate gelato is great, the steak tartare appetizer is alright. The stuffed pork chop was decent. I wasn't disappointed, in short, and would go back as long as someone else was paying (as was the case last weekend!), but it sounds like there are other places in Bethesda that are better-liked and better priced.
