Dinner with Dad + friend

natersflee Mar 11, 2009 10:15 AM

Have both my Dad and a friend in town for work and heading to dinner with them tonight - but no idea where to go. He did Zaytinya last night so I want to stay away from another tapas/mezzes type place and we're doing Georgia Brown's on Thursday night. Looking for the same level of place, in DC proper (preferably) with a good atmosphere as we might could possibly get a little loud and be laughing a lot. Area doesn't really matter too much - most convenient would be Chinatown / Penn Quarter. Thought about Ray's, but am looking for suggestions to keep it in the city...

    What about Matchbox for pizza and beer?

    Or PS7 or Zola?

    If you want steak you could do BLT which is near Chinatown, or Capitol Grille or Charlie Palmer?

      All great suggestions ktmoomau. I especially like Matchbox, Zola, and Charlie Palmer's.
      In Chinatown, I would also highly recommend Proof...one of my favorite places, particularly if you guys are wine-people. Another good place in the area is Poste.
      Not sure of your price range, but the Source is fantastic and about a block or two away from the Penn Quarter metro. It is definitely high-end though, so only go if you want or are willing to spend a lot of money.
      Have a great time with your dad!
