D.C. Neighborhood Bistro Recommendations
My in-laws will be in town for the evening of Friday, October 31st (yet, Halloween). We will be coming down from Baltimore and staying with them in a hotel near Logan Circle (N.W.) and want to go out for a nice meal. Nothing too expensive, more mid-range (no more than $25 for entrees)
We love going to great, classy neighborhood bistros - something authentic that a local would go to. We don't have a preference for a specific type of cuisine, but we would love to go somewhere that is a quick cab ride or walking distance from Logan Circle. Also, since it's Halloween, we are thinking we should avoid Georgetown or anwhere that could be more of a party scene.
I would love your recommendations!
I would go to Hank's Oyster Bar in Dupont...a short walk from Logan Circle.
If you are willing to take a short cab or metro ride, the first place that comes to mind is Bistro D'Oc. A delicious and cozy french bistro in Metro Center.
2 other great choices would be Cashion's Eat Place (Adams Morgan) and Creme (U St).
You could try Logan Tavern or check out the new Commissary on P St. If you're up for venturing further, I second the nomination for Bistro D'oc (it's sort of a forgotten little place but have had great experiences there). Cafe St Ex or Marvin on U St are also great options. If your in-laws are more adventurous, Etete has a warm atmosphere and good Ethiopian food.
It's not super close to Logan, but Montmartre on Capitol hill is a great neighborhood bistro and won't have the party-crowd!
