Great food, fun and casual - anything in the greater Gaithersburg area?

I'm looking for great food in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. I'm in Gaithersburg, but I'd be willing to go down to Rockville or up to Frederick, and anywhere in between. I want to be blown away by what I eat without having to feel out of place in jeans. Any cuisine will do, but something new is usually more intriguing to me than traditional. Something like Oyamel would be right up my alley, but it doesn't have to be Mexican. Any nationality will do, as long as it's great. I'm also partial to places with great pastry chefs. Any suggestions?
