DC restaurants with 'pink' or 'blue' in name?
Kind of an odd request, but my husband and I are finding out what gender our baby is today, and want to celebrate by going out to dinner. I thought of Indebleu but can't come up with a 'pink' restaurant. Alternatively, we thought of going to a place with a person's name in the restaurant's name. Like, 2Amy's for a girl (but I hope it's not twins :) or Hank's Oyster bar for a boy, etc.
Other suggestions are welcome, for a mid-level price range ($100 or so for both of us, shouldn't be too hard since I am not drinking!) celebration-type place. We eat pretty much any type of food. Metro accessible would be great. Thanks for considering my weird request!
also, Blue Duck Tavern. I couldn't find anything with "pink" in the name. Farrah Olivia in Alexandria is named after local celebrity chef Morou Ouattara's 2 year old daughter.
I think your request is adorable and, as a grandma wannabe, I'm thrilled to help you out.
Rose Restaurant, a Persian restaurant in Vienna, is a reasonably close version of a pink name. (You'd have to take a taxi from the Vienna metro station.)
If you're selective in your ordering, you can eat at Blue Duck Tavern in your price range. Definitely check out the menu online to see if my opinion about price seems valid to you.
Indigo Landing is another blue possibility. Definitely not Metro accessible!
Finally, not quite what you asked but the menu at Jaleo defines the name of the restaurant as "revelry" and "merrymaking." Your news certainly falls into that category.
re: Indy 67
Doesn't Blue Duck Tavern also have some sort of a lounge menu?
This is one of the cutest requests I've heard of on this board btw! Congrats!!! Unfortunatly I don't think there is anywhere with "pink" in it's name. The only place I can think of is Bar Rouge (red). I know besides drinks (which I imagine you can't partake in) they have some food...mostly stylized lounge/bar food. But a cool decor.
Hank's is right in your price range and one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants.
In terms of places with names you can check out Brasserie Beck. The chef named the restaurant after his youngest son (his other son got the honor of being the namesake for Marcel's).
You can also check out Dino's. They are running a $23 3-course special right now so if you are into Italian, Italian baby boy names, and great specials you should check them out.
What a cute idea. I, too, am drawing a blank for "pink" restaurants. I second Blue Duck Tavern for a boy. And what about just going to a place like l'enfant care (l'enfant = child in french) or somewhere in the L'Enfant Plaza area...i am not too familiar with the restaurants around there.
Restaurant Eve in Old Town is named after a baby girl and is delish!
If it is twins- a boy and a girl you can go to Red, Hot & Blue;)
Can't think of pink though
weird requests deserve weird answers
Ciao Baby on L St is no longer, right? that woulda been good
dunno, maybe explore your delivery options
Well, the verdict was BOY! And his mama was too tired after all the excitement to stay downtown until the evening, so we ended up going home, relaxing, and having a nice late(ish) dinner at Ray's the Classics (we live in Silver Spring so it was easy). It was fabulous. Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes and recommendations!
