Philly Hounds looking for a delicious fall weekend in DC
Heading down to DC the weekend before Thanksgiving for a performance at Kennedy Center.
Very excited to try signature DC spots. Only have two dinners to do so. Going to try for Little Serow on a Friday night. Saturday is an earlier dinner because of the show, but was thinking Mintwood Place or Kapnos. Love the vibe of Mintwood, but a MI visit would be nice. Also not sure where we will be staying yet, but want to get these dinners in line. Thanks in advance!
Thanks for the recs! I have not been to Mintwood, but love what I have seen and the whole philosophy of the food and restaurant.
Our show on Saturday is at 8 and we will be dressed for the Center. So was thinking Mintwood early and then a cab to the show.
Is anything worthwhile open late? Here in Philly, we have some great food at bars. Anything like that in DC?
Definitely a Rasika West End fan. And also Blue Duck Tavern. Kintaro is a newish Japanese place in Georgetown that's also great and not that expensive (though check to see if they've gotten their liquor license yet, they were close last time I was there).
Also if you're interested in a post show drink, try the Columbia Room and the Rogue 24 Spirits Bar, which are both excellent (reservations needed).
If you have already tried Mintwood (which is one of my favorite restaurants in DC) I would check out Kapnos. I went on Friday and thought it was great. You might want to make a special request for a table at the chef's table....that way if Chef Isabella is in you can see him at work.
If you are looking for something closer to the Kennedy Center I recommend Rasika West End or Ris. For much higher end there is of course the amazing Marcel's.
