My mom is coming into town next week and we are going to do Mother's day and a "thank you" dinner in one. I'd like to take her somewhere with great food and a nice atmosphere. That doesn't necessarily mean formal dining... I'm just not looking for a hole in the wall.
My mom is an amazing cook who grew up with fine food and wine. My dad is not so into food, so she doesn't get to try too many great restaurants these days. Last time she came to town, we went to Ris and she loved it. She's also enjoyed 701.
Any suggestions on a nice place with amazing flavors? I'd prefer something in Dupont, Georgetown or downtown.
