Dining for men
Hi, my dad, brother and husband will be visiting D.C. Can anyone recommend some restaurants that they would enjoy? Nothing frou-frou and yes, they're carnivores. I see a lot of recommendations but they are in publications that might not match their tastes. They will be in town for 4 days so they would enjoy variety.
For steak I would suggest Charlie Palmer's Steak House or Prime Rib (but be aware that at Prime Rib men have to wear a jacket...totally worth it though!).
For traditional red Italian they might enjoy Filomena in Georgetown. For more rustic Italian check out Dinos in Cleveland Park.
They can grab pizza at Pizza Paradisio (in Dupont and Georgetown) or at Sette Osteria (in Dupont...also has good pasta, chautecerie etc).
For good, casual seafood have them check out Hank's Oyster Bar. For higher end I hear that Black Salt is good.
Brasserie Beck has excellent Belgium cuisine with an amazing beer list.
Other places they might like: Acadiana, Ceiba, or Creme.
And if they are looking for something a little more trendy/popular have them check out Central or Proof (especially if they are into wine).
How about a crab feast at the Quarterdeck in Arlington? Certainly not frou-frou and its quite the carnivore experience (albeit not red meat, ripping animals apart should qualify, no?)
Raw Meat - Ethiopian on U-Street - Dukem/Etete
Steak - Ray's the Steaks, Capital Grille
Burgers - 5 Guys, and apparently Hell Burger
Wings? Fried Chicken?
