Casual Celebratory Dinner in the District

Looking for a place for a celebratory (but casual) dinner tomorrow night in the District. I have been wanting to try Proof for a while since I hear they have nice champagnes by the glass and the like. Also, I love Palena Cafe but rumor has it that a lot of local vegetable sources are still dealing with flooded fields and are in a gap with fresh stuff. What's best right now? Looking for a nice fun atmosphere where can talk and spend less than $100 (or so) for the two of us!

I am also looking for some easy metro-ing from the orange line (one transfer or less).

Recommendations in the past have been Cork (still really loud?), Poste (last time I went, my scrambled eggs with salmon, creme fraiche, and caviar were only eggs), and Cava (with only two of us, maybe mezze isn't the right choice).

What are the options?
