I've been a Chowhound's voyeur for sometime now. I've learned a lot about food and finding good food, so thanks. We'll be travelling to DC mid June, and while we were trying to get reservations for minibar and/or Komi, I was informed today by minibar that they would be closing. So I must say it is a relief, because it was very stressful trying to get a reservation. We DID secure a reservation for Komi, and I'm really excited. My question for you gurus: should we wine pair or not? We are wine lovers of all kinds, but I must admit we are not well-learned. I don't know a wine menu well enough to feel like I can make an informed decision if I don't recognize any names. I know the wines I LIKE to drink and would be willing to pay a corkage fee, but don't know how they would pair with the food I DON'T know I'm eating. So what are your suggestions? Finally, we'll be blowing a big wad-0-dough at Komi, but suppose we have $100-200 left for our ENTIRE 4-day visit. Would you suggest VOLT for lunch, or checking out many of the cheaper food suggestions mentioned on the board. We live in the midwest, so want to make the most of our visit.
