DMV-- Birthday Dinner: Restaurants that bring out a birthday cake!

I am looking for restaurants in the DMV area that have cake specials/bring out a birthday cake for the person celebrating their birthday. For example, Oya has a "birthday package" where they bring out champagne for the birthday person then cake after dinner, etc. etc. I'm trying to figure out if there are any other restaurants that do something similar because I've been to Oya a million and 1 times already. I would like the restaurant to be nice, classy... price doesn't really matter. I just want a little something to make the dinner a little more special... a "surpise factor" if you will, rather than just a regular old, boring birthday dinner....

  1. As long as you are willing to pay for it, I would think that almost any place that has a dessert menu would be willing to throw a candle on it if you contact them in advance.

      I think the op wants to have her cake and eat it too.

    2. I've never been in a DMV that had a restaurant. If you find one in Maryland, let me know. That would be very convenient.

          Metropolitan Washington? I though you meant the Division of Motor Vehicles. I still think a restaurant in the DMV is a great idea. Maybe a dry cleaner as well.

            Gaithersburg MVA has the taco trucks in the parking lot. ;-)

              Yes, I've been to that one. Once they were done with me, I couldn't afford a taco.

            "District, Maryland, and Virginia" covers a lot of territory for a restaurant that serves birthday cake. I suspect that the original poster has a specific region in mind.

            I recall being downtown a year or so ago (I don't get out of Falls Gulch very often) and seeing one of those posters or banners on a lamp post referring to DMV that suggested it was an area of the District not too far from the Convention Center where I was. I don't know what that DMV is an acronym for, but I know we've had this discussion before.

              Yep, and we'll probably have it again.
