Date Weekend in DC

Just spent an amazing weekend in DC with my girlfriend. We had three nights there and ate at 3 different places recommended by Chowhounders.

Jaleo was terrific. Never ate tapas before (she had). Recommend anything with shrimp. afterwards went across the street for a beer at a brewpub, forget the name. Bartender was a little cranky but the red ale was great (not crazy about the Oatmeal Stout).

Etete was super. When i read reviews i figured, OK, some dishes you eat with your hands, but not every dish. It was a lot of fun. It was a Monday and Queen Makeda was closed but next time we'll try there.

Real nice breakfast at Teaism. Scrambled eggs and lox. Cilantro spiced up the eggs.
