Yes, I know it's not even Halloween but I'm coming to DC for Christmas and I'm VERY excited!
We're going to the Terra Cotta Warriors at the National Geographic and the Nutcracker at the Warner Theater--sister loves to plan outings.
Seeking two restaurants near our events or on the way. Will eat anything. Want to avoid high end of cost spectrum.
We LIKE using the metro, but will have a car so we can go anywhere. Would prefer not to get mugged outside of restaurant, but willing to participate in local urban economic stimulus program in exchange for good eats. (Joke, sister knows DC area pretty good)
Wonder if DC has any good Izakayas or restaurants that do a decent Kaiseki? Would kill for a great Yakitori place for a late night snack. Haven't seen much on that on the DC board. I love sushi, but I'm a bit of a traditionalist and tend to avoid rolls especially if they have geographic locations, monsters, bugs, or spicy in their names.
Here's my short list which is not too short yet, but that's why I'm starting NOW. I also have no idea if all (any) of these places are anywhere near where I think I'm going to be going.
Blue Duck Tavern
Taberna del Alabardero
I've already done Oyamel, Zaytina, Jaleo, and a few other places with names I cannot recall.
