One night - best bet near M St. & New Hampshire
We have one night in Georgetown and are looking for recommendations. Not super expensive - we prefer to eat at the bar. Wifey is seafood/veg only, so that needs to be considered.
Your advice is greatly appreciated. Review to follow.
Hook is good for seafood, but the bar at Blue Duck is great... it is a beautiful and very relaxing setting, although I tend to think their roast meats outshine anything else.
You might also put BlackSalt on the list, although it isn't right in Georgetown you would have to cab.
If you're looking for seafood, then Hook. Otherwise, for a more varied menu as well as a nice ambiance, go with the Blue Duck Tavern. My vegetarian friends also report that the Westend bistro has good veggie options too.
Another idea would be to eat at the bar at Citronelle. How much you spend is entirely up to you, depending on whether you try a variety of appetizers, split an entree, etc. In particular for your wife, the tuna appetizer was incredibly delicious last time I was there about a month ago.
