Dining near Lisner/GW next Saturday
I need a place for an early-ish dinner before a 7:30 Tegan and Sara concert next Saturday (11/24). My husband, precocious 6 year-old, and I are open to almost any cuisine, provided it's well-prepared. I want something casual to upscale/casual--NO chains, please!
Thanks in advance!
I would suggest Taberna del Alberdero but you will want to try to get there early to get a table, otherwise it might be difficult for your 6 year-old. That being said...the tapas are delicious. If you order before 7pm they have 1/2 off tapas and sangria. I was there last week before the Anthony Bourdain event and had a delicious meal of croquettes which I find myself still dreaming about.
Another place near by is Dish. I really enjoyed my meal there when I went but that was over a year ago and I believe the chef is different. Still they did a wonderful take on a picnic basket (the best fried chicken I've ever had, a biscuit, fancy potatoe salad, black eyed peas etc) and it was great!
The new Tonic is nearby as well for good bar style food. Your 6 year-old might really like their mac and cheese. (Actually you and your husband might enjoy it as well).
Finally Kinkeads is about a block away for yummy seafood.
