Looking for a small intimate live Jazz place in DC Metro
Just came back from NYC & they had this great Italian cafe (can fit @ most 100) serving lasagna, after dinner dessert & live jazz in the bar & dinner area called La Laterna Caffe (http://lalanternacaffe.com/
)Supposedly 1 of the most romantic places in NYC for a date.
Do we have anything like that here?
My neighbor plays trumpet with a pick up jazz band at Pistone's in Seven Corners on Sundays sometimes. I'm not saying the food is great, but you may wish to inquire with the mgmt about the live jazz.
I really enjoyed the Monday night band at Bohemian Caverns, on U St in DC. I didn't eat but others were having dinner and the food looked fine from a distance -- but I do think it's more about having drinks (there was a one or two drink minimum, if I remember) and really focusing on the music. This is downstairs I'm talking about, and I'm sure it sits fewer than 100. I don't know about the restaurant upstairs, but I'd be curious. It's the oldest still operating jazz club in the U.S. after the Village Vanguard in NYC, or so they say.
