We live in northern VA, about 8 miles out of D.C. We are celebrating our 20th, and mother and father-in-law are coming from Cape Cod to celebrate with us in mid-Nov. My daughter is vegetarian, so the safest way to go, after a few years experience with this, is Italian. We want upscale and very good service for this event. We thought we might get a limo and do a night tour of the monuments after dinner. My first thought was Galileo, but I see that it is closed, which is a big bummer. I have been to Tosca several times, and have not been impressed with the food, which has consistenly been too salty for us, and ok, but not great, service.
I do not want to leave this dinner disappointed in either food or service. I looked at Maestro at Ritz Tyson (which has a veg. option) but this will be a weekend night and we don't want to pay that price for a tasting menu. Help with other options?
