Do you create unique foods? Get great advice

If you were staying at the Mayflower Hotel and were looking for a bar . . .

with good eats, where would you go? I'm thinking Mortons since we need to be in walking distance.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

    I would head to the bar at Casa Nonna. Really good food and a nice, large bar. Only a couple minutes walk...and better than Mortons in my humble opinion.

          Tabard Inn if you want a couch in front of a fire. Or if you can walk five or six blocks, please go to the Hay-Adams and get a drink at Off the Record!

          Let us all have a moment of silence for Town and Country.

          Tabard Inn
          1739 N St NW, Washington, DC 20036

            We went to Off the Record last time which was perfect -- but that's why I want to stay close to the hotel. Great Manhattans . . . .

              Knowing that's your taste, I'll go back to Tabard, which is cozy, or the above-mentioned Quill, which is more modern but equally delicious.

                How are cocktails at Tabard? I have only partaken of their excellent beer selection.

                  It was at Tabard that I fell in love with a sidecar, hold the sugar rim. They do the classic well.
