My wife and I will be in DC for 4 days at the end of this month (29th - 3rd). We are travelling by car from Dallas so driving is not a problem if need be. I know about the traffic and all, got it covered. I have done my research and I failed to book Volt earlier so I need a few recommendations.
We are into just about any cuisine and into craft beer, but we are looking for cuisines we don't have a good representation of in Dallas (Dallas has Pakistani, Korean, Vietnamese and Mexican). My wife is pregnant so she can't have any alcohol or any raw meats.
I know we will be hitting up Eatern Market, El Pollo Rico, Bangkok Golden, Chez Aunty Libe, Amsterdam Falafel, Sundevich and more than likely Granville Moore's for beer.
We are looking for a high end place and really can't pinpoint which to choose. Please no steak and generally nothing overly stuffy (no high end French). Below is what I have gathered through combing the boards. Is there any of these below that you like over the others? What specific dishes are good/must orders? Are there any others we might have missed.
Rasika - is it that much better than Indika/Pondicheri in Houston
We know it will be crab season so we are also looking for a place outside DC that is a well known but not touristy crab place. We are after the food not the atmosphere.
I made a map of all the places I gathered but i know we will not be able to hit them all.
