Entertaining in DC
Heading to DC in May to entertain clients and colleagues. Tried to get into Blue Duck with a party of 8 on Friday and Saturday but large tables are already booked. Have done and liked Nora, Equinox (which Zagat has as temporarily closed) and Charlie Palmer Steak. Cityzen may be too far over the top for this group. Heard that Obelisk is awesome, and I can consider that for a night out on my own with my better half. Sommelier son will be with us as well, so decent wine lists are a must. So please have at it. We like good, innovative and flavorful food. Thanks in advance.
Proof may be some place to consider. And Corduroy, both are similar in range of quality of food and price to the others you mention. I really like Cafe Atlantico for unique food, but their cocktails are better than the wine list.
Dino always has a great wine list, but may be a tad bit more casual than Equinox and the like. What about J&G steakhouse or Bourbon steak? They have a lot more than just steak.
