Left my job, need to celebrate

Today was my last day at a job I should have left years ago. My BF and I would like to go out tonight to celebrate. I'm thinking drinks and appetizers (or something light) somewhere in NW. Any suggestions?

  1. if you're celebrating , The Blue Duck Tavern is excellent. May not be able to get a reservation now though. Dupont Gril is also good and cheaper. TenPen is another good, though pricey choice.

    1. How about the bar at Equinox? Great food and you can get a few nice glasses of wine or a bottle.

      If you are looking for something a little more modern and moderate priced, I would suggest PS7. Their lounge has a great menu with fun appetizers like mini tuna tartar sliders and a homemade mini half smoke platter. Really creative drinks as well. Washingtonian just named their bartender best in the city.

      Another option around Chinatown/Penn Quarter would be Jaleo or Zola.

      For something a little more pricey but totally worth is is Taberna del Alberdero. You can a few plates of tapas and a delicious glass of wine. I highy recommend the croquettes...the best way to celebrate ANYTHING!!
