Boston Hound needs help-2 dinners
Hi i have 2 dinners to plan and have cruised the posts. There will be 2 of us on a business trip and we would like to be south of $250 all in with wine .Opentable seems to indicate that we can snag PS7, Proof, Cordouroy , Bistro Bis . In the past we have done PrimeRib, Kinkeads, and Ten Penh. No huge preferences re food but being from Boston wouldn't be looking for seafood or necessarily Italian. Have car will travel within DC limits Should I choose 2 of the 4 available and if so which 2 or what am I missing ..we eat everything ..thanks very much and happy to reciprocate if you come to Boston.
Hello fellow Bostonian!
All the restaurants open on OpenTable are very good but I would personally go with PS7 and Corduroy (or Bistro Bis...for a different area of town and a different type of menu).
A lot of those restaurants are a little similar though. If you want something totally different (and more affordable) you might want to try Ethiopian cuisine. I would go to Etete on U St. The plus side to this is you will also get to see a cool part of town with lots of fun bars (to get an after dinner drink).
Another option would go for food and small plates at Cork (they don't take reservations though.)
For excellent modern Indian and wine list (although on the louder end in my opinion) you can try the vibrant Rasika.
And my favorite restaurant in town (next to PS7) is Central. You should call and see if they have reservation available even if there is nothing on OpenTable. It's one of the city's best and unlike anything I have found in Boston.
Definitely go to PS7 - IMO you can't do better in their price range. I also really like Proof and Bistro Bis, but I've been more impressed by dishes at PS7. I haven't been to Corduroy yet but I hear great things...
Also, I second the recommendation for Equinox. They are also having specials June, July, and August - 3 courses for $40 per person, which is an excellent deal.
