Last summer we visited my stepdaughter who was an intern. Zaytinya was one of the suggestions from this board and the food was wonderful, BUT it was so loud we could hardly hear each other. Making this even worse is that my stepdaughter has a hearing impairment.
So, any suggestions again for a restaurant with great food that isn't too loud. We'll only get a chance to visit her once in DC...so someplace special would be great. She likes everything, but Indian. Thanks so much for your suggestions!
