I will be in Washington on April 15th for a two day conference. The only free night is Sunday and I'm not familiar with the city. I will be staying at the OMNI. A bunch of us want to head out after the reception (around 6:30pm).
We're looking for somewhere that is lively, has great cocktails/wine and good food but I'm not sure if that's possible because of the day of the week. (Toronto is kind of dead on a Sunday night). I don't want to eat at a hotel - unless it's exceptional, a diner or southern restaurant. Thanks for any help!
