Washington D.C. restaurant with great food fit for formal attire
My husband and I are visiting Washington in April. We'll be attending a black tie event early in the evening and want to find a restaurant with great food where we will feel comfortable arriving in formal attire. (Lively bar with interesting cocktails a plus!)

CityZen in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is perfect for this. It has a nice bar area and excellent high-priced food.
You'd be quite comfortable in formal attire at Marcel's, and the food is great. I don't know anything about the bar there, though.
1789 in Georgetown REQUIRES jackets, as does Prime Rib, on K Street. You will not be out of place at either.
