Birthday Dinner Recommendations in DC or......

nmurawsk Jan 30, 2013 10:56 AM

My husband and I are new to the area (living in Rockville) and since we have a 2 y.o. and no family nearby, we have not had a big night out yet. My birthday coming up and my mother has graciously offered to visit for the weekend and give us a night out. Should I head straight to Volt? Somewhere in DC? Georgetown? Any recommendations are appreciated. Would like to stick with American fare, Italian, Mediterranean etc. (no Asian, Indian). The only other diet restrictions I have is that I am pregnant so no need for spectacular wine pairing, no organ meats, things like that. Thank you in advance!

    Do you have a price range?

      I would say between $100-150, including a couple drinks for my husband and tip.

        I would go to either Bibianna, Graffiato, Central, Blacksalt, or Cashion's Eat Place.

      Some options:
      All in DC:
      * Acadiana- good for a special night without breaking the bank
      * Vidalia- Great southern food, good cocktails
      * My VERY Favorite: Fiola- Best italian I have had in the city (although, it may run you over with a few drinks, dessert, BUT WELL WORTH it)

      Regardless, enjoy!

        how far IS Frederick from Rockville? the burbs are so outside of my ken. as Volt always sounds interesting (but not in the price range stated).

          It's about 45 min according to Google Maps. Worth it for the night but looks like you are right about the price range.
