Hi all - i have one of my closest friends in the world visiting me in dc this weekend. Tomorrow night i want to take her out with a group of my dc friends in adams morgan and thus, would like to do dinner there. With the cold weather I'd prefer to stay within that location versus walking up from dupont or down from woodley/cleveland. It is COLD outside! I'd like to keep it quite inexpensive as there are a variety of incomes present at the table and my friend coming up is used to rural nc prices! i think lauriol will be a headache although it fits the bill otherwise. i've found places that are fun but too crowded and places that are low key and good food but don't evoke the fun night on the town spirit.
also, as a sidenote i really recommend the ethiopian restaurant next to the wine shop on the corner of 18th and U that is ALWAYS empty and never gets any mention on the board. just went there for the first time a few weekends ago and it was empty (i.e. we sat down immediately) and i thought it was incredibly tasty and inexpensive :)
