BDay dinner--need some good authentic ethnic recs

GarlicandGinger Jul 5, 2007 01:16 PM

My wife and I are going out to celebrate my birthday next Tuesday evening and she wants me to pick the restaurant. We live in DC.

I enjoy eating in restaurants where the dining room is filled with patrons as authentic as the food. Can you guys give me some help? It can be food from any continent except Antarctica...I just want the real deal and a special birthday dinner. Many thanks in advance!
