Dining early May while conferencing
I'll be conferencing in DC early May and looking for dinner places preferably around DuPont circle or foggy bottom (maybe 1 night in Georgetown).
Mostly (but not limited to) interested in Japanese, Asian fusion, Nuevo Latino, steakhouse,high end Indian. Budget at $80 a head.
Thanks in advance to all repliers
japanese- Sushi Taro, Tono Sushi
Asian Fusion - Oya, Sei
Nuevo Latino- Ceiba
Steakhouse- The Palm, The Prime Rib, BLT Steak, Bourbon Steak, Charlie Palmer Steakhouse, Ruths Chris Steakhouse
high end Indian- Rasika
Sushi Taro can blast the $80 a head budget with ease, but is it good! Bar Pilar has been doing a lot of fusion before their remodel. I think they are open again but maybe no the full space. By May, they should be back. On my own dime, CP Steak. On someone else's BLT Steak or Bourbon. BLT just lost their chef, have not heard anything on the replacement yet.
I would make the trek to bunch at Dino or Palena in Cleveland Park before heading out on Sunday. The time getting from Dupont to Cleveland Park would be made up by the easier trip to the airport.
Palena is a very refined brunch and their duck egg dishes are amazing. So is their pork belly. Great baked goods too.
Dino is hearty. Love the eggs Benedict with prosciutto and fried artichokes. Best mimosa in town AFAIC. Fabulous bread but no sweet breads or pastries.
