What's New & Innovative?
Hello DC Hounds:
I'll be arriving for an annual jaunt to DC in a couple of weeks and am looking for good dinner recommendations (both new and old stand-bys are welcome). I'll be staying downtown and have fairly eclectic tastes. My price point is approx. $50-75 pp.
Many thanks, and I'm looking forward to my visit!
Try Rasika for a very inventive and modern take on Indian food, and Brasserie Beck for wonderful mussels and frites and a great Belgian beer list.
Churchkey is a new bar with a wonderful beer selection ... and so-so bar food. The beer is the reason to go; it's very popular -- there is often a line out front to get in for those who don't arrive early enough. Birch and Barley downstairs is said to have very good food and great desserts - I haven't been there yet.
Masala Art is new and has excellent Indian food (take the Metro to Tenleytown).

Minibar is the most eclectic eating event in the area, but reservations are a hard score. But you can call and get on the waiting list for a cancellation? It is inside Cafe Atlantico which is a little eclectic itself.
Poste is doing a 20 bites menu at the bar that looks very innovative (although they clearly stole a course from minibar) for $75 pp. I don't know if there are reservations open?
Birch & Barley and Churchkey are new.
So is Ris, Againn, Plume. I haven't been to any yet.
