what to wear/order at ardeo?
I've gone in jeans and a cute shirt before (I'm a girl). I think guys would be fine in nice jeans and a button down shirt. It's pretty casual but I wouldn't wear jeans and a t-shirt with sneakers.
As for the food I have been really happy with my meals there the last few times I've been. It's a great neighborhood restaurant and if I lived closer I would go more often. The mussell appetizer in particular is really good.
If you decide not to dine there but want to stick to a neighborhood gem I would go to Cashion's in Adams Morgan or Creme on U St.
Dress is casual....SO IS THE FOOD.....I would say the last 3 or 4 times I have been there the food has slightly improved but it still lacks something.....I don't know, just order something that isn't pasta or fish.....That isn't said because I am a meat guy....I just think the meat dishes are better..
Hope you have fun.....
