Best Chef's Table?

r

I've got an upcoming work celebration dinner where we can basically pick any place we want. Last time we did the chef's table at Little Inn of Washington. Was thinking this time for either City Zen or Volt. Any recommendations?

    You would love Volt, Table 21.

      Rogue24
      Seasonal Pantry
      Citronelle

      In that order.

        Citronelle has been shuttered for some time now.

          Someone told me that it reopened, or was reopening? No?

            According to Sietsema's review of Villard Michel Richard in yesterday's WAPO, MR is looking for another DC site to open next year. "Like Citronelle but lighter."

              Given that the byline of the article is "December 30, 2013" that would be "this year" right?

              :-)

                2014. I'm lagging.

                  I'm still struggling with the Y2k thing.

          Rogue 24 is having financial issues. Whether that affects the food, I don't know.

          Al Dente does a tasting for 4 people per night. It is wonderful, and surprisingly inexpensive.

          I've never been to Seasonal Pantry.

            Lawsuit between owner and chef? Tragedy.

            Another vote for Seasonal Pantry.

              Does your dinner include a night in a hotel? If so, I think you should consider some really good restaurants in Philly.

                Volt Table 21, if there's only 6 of you and you can get in. You can't go wrong with Cityzen. Consider Tosca. If it's during the week, have Yannick Cam cook for you at Bistro Provence in Bethesda.
