Please help DC foodies!
It's my girlfriend's birthday and she wants to go someplace where we can get away with a dress and khakis and a tie. So not formal, but not "casual."
As for food, the preference is definitely Thai or Indian (or anything with awesome vegetarian entrees since she is one and I sportingly play along). We're staying around Dupont (Hotel Palomar) and would prefer to walk, but if it's worth it we can definitely cab it.
So far, I've heard Rasika for Indian, though not sure about dress code.
Thanks for any and all suggestions, she's an Arlington resident so we'll have a chance to try out anything eventually.
