My husband is heading down to DC Monday morning for a business lunch for two, and has asked me to help him find a place. We lived there about five years ago, so are somewhat familiar with places, and he does go down there a couple of times a year. Usually he ends up at Kinkead's or Taberna for lunch, and, on occasion, Gerard's Place.
He was wondering about Le Paradou - I searched the board, but didn't find much about it other than quick recommendations, and while it's well rated on Zagat, the user comments there were less than stellar. We'd been to Tosca when we lived in D.C., but he decided that he didn't think it was great. Bistro LePic was one of our favorites when we lived there, but might be a bit out of the way (he's coming in to Union Station).
So, any thoughts on Le Paradou or other good choices? Price not an issue. He'd thought about Komi, but they aren't open for lunch.
