To make a long story short, my wife and I are getting away for the weekend to DC over Valentine's Day. It wasn't our original idea, but we need a weekend away after a very hard few weeks. We are arriving around 10:30 on Friday night and have a late night reservation at Proof.
But, Feb. 14th is turning out to be a problem. We don't want to get into all the prix-fixe deals around town and after some initial searching, it looks like there isn't a table to be found anywhere, even with the places that are offering these get'em in and roll'em out menus anyway.
So are there any ideas for either local hole in the wall places, or someplace to doesn't take reservations that we can sit at the bar for a while before we get a table?
I know that there are a few other threads on this, but as I mentioned, there are no reservations to be had at any of those spots.
