Palena, Corduroy or ???

Looking to impress and show off DC to a few foodies from NYC. Want a restaurant with top food and a more relaxed, neighborhood feel. Love Komi, but not able to do a 4 hours tasting extravaganza on this night. If we could order a la carte from Komi's menu, that would be perfect (but we are going on Saturday night). Cityzen and Citronelle are both amaz, but I want to avoid the formal, hotel scene.

Palena and Corduroy come to mind (though I haven't tried the latter since its move to a new location). Can you share recent experiences at these? Other recommendations would be great.

Thanks in advance for your help
