Tall Order for DC Dinner?
You've helped me in our previous trips to DC. We've eaten at Zaytina, Rasika, and Matchbox and enjoyed them all. The next trip we are staying one night in DC on our way to Virginia for a dinner at the Inn at Little Washington and basically a few days of bike riding and gluttony.
For the dinner in DC we'll be with a family member who is hearing impaired...so we need a restaurant that is relatively quiet. Can you suggest a more low key restaurant, maybe ethnic or seafood?
I'm open to any suggestions you might have. Thank you!

Tosca is a lovely restaurant. The room is calm, the service unobtrusive and the food quite good. There will be no rush, you'll "own" the table for the evening if you choose. This Italian restaurant has a way with seafood. Pastas are quite good. Not cheap, this is not a red sauce place. I like it a lot.
Corduroy is quiet with delicious food. More on the pricey side, but definitely worth it. My last meal at New Heights, near the Woodly Park metro, was quiet. Bombay Club, near the White House, is quiet if the piano player isn't there. Yummy Indian food in a lovely room.

Corduroy is a great recommendation. The food, in my opinion, is superior to Tosca. And they have their three-course, $30 menu in the bar area that's the best deal in the city. The food is as excellent their as in the dining room, just different, like the dining room would serve duck breasts, while the legs would be confited in the bar.
