    Do you have a price range and a preferred part of the city? There are a lot of great restaurants in DC which can accommodate your companion's boorish food restrictions, and many have their menus online so that she can review in advance rather than having a snit at the table. With your size group you will definitely want/need reservations. Do the rest of you have preferences, such as not-a-steakhouse?

      Thanks. It is now 6 people, and only the one has restrictions. Price I would prefer moderate but it doesn't matter. I also took your tip and just read menus. I'm thinking Central Michel Richard and 15 Ria.

        In each case it is worth calling ahead to be sure the menus on websites are current and that both the CC and salmon are still offered.

          That's a great idea, I will do. Thanks

          Central is a great option.

          Also look at The Hamilton. I'm pretty sure they have both a salmon dish and a Ceasar salad.

            Will look at both for the second night. Thanks

        How about Ris? Their website seems to be down but I'd be surprised if they didn't have salmon, at least. The food is lovely- I particularly enjoyed an Argentine style steak with rice and a fried egg. The lamb with, I think, pomegranate is great too.

          I hope the restaurants work out, but that is a really annoying food limitation -- 'salmon and caesar salad only' is a new one on me.

            Agreed. I'll let everyone know how it works out.
