1 Year Anniversay in DC

Hi. We will be celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversay in DC next month and are looking for some good dining suggestions. We will be staying at the Mayflower hotel in the White House district. We love steak houses, Italian, and seafood but are also adventerous eaters. Thanks for your help!

  1. Not that far from your hotel is Equinox, a wonderful restaurant right next to the White House. It's the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. Chef Gray focuses on local, seasonal cuisine. If you are going in October or November you will be able to sample all the wonderful flavors of Fall. Certainly make sure to get one of Chef Gray's wonderful soups.

    He almost always has pastas, meats, and fish on the menu.

    Happy Anniversary!!

    1. Places to investigate: Obelisk for Italian, Bourbon Steak for well steak, Blacksalt or Corduroy for seafood.

      Other places you might look into: Eola, Palena, Proof.

      3529 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008

      1. Bibiana is excellent for Italian; you can walk there from your hotel or take a cab.

        1100 New York Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20005

        1. Some recommendations:

          Blue Duck Tavern
          Komi (more on the adventurous side)
          Oval Room

          All either within walking distance or a short cab ride away.
