Palena or Komi?

Two restaurants I've been dying to try. I know that both are excellent, but which one do you prefer? Any reasons to choose one over the other?

  1. Do them both. They are quite different. I like the more casual atmosehre of Komi and I think the dozen or more amuse bouche are the biggest attraction for me. They are innovative, fun, and delicious. The main courses are great but not the stars here. Palena is a bit more formal and the attractions are the main courses. You won't go wrong at either place.

    1. Go to both. Soon.

      I could go on and on and on about both places, but they both are excellent.

      1. They are the two best restaurants in DC. You cannot possibly go wrong at either. However, I think Komi is harder to get into.
