L.A. foodies need to know: Proof? Corduroy?

We have read up and eliminated Citronelle and Marvels. Had to narrow it down! Also eliminated OvalRoom. No tapas, please. Would love a great and memorable location...outdoors maybe even? Staying near Dupont Circle, although with public transportation readily available (hooray!) Not limited on location. Would love advice. Lastly, want to be dressed a trendy 30 something way. Thanks in advance for help!

        1. We don't dress very trendily here - beware. Consider adding Blue Duck Tavern to your list.

          1. re: DC in DC

            huh? granted DC leans more towards Brooks Bros. and Prada rather than Issey Miyake or LaCroix, but people are quite stylish, just understated. but then again if your coat, no matter the source, isn't tailored right and puckers in back, you might get snickers.

              DC is Hollywood for ugly people. Not.

          2. Sounds like Proof is a hit! Can't wait to try in two weeks. Thanks so much!
