B/f's dad & step-momcoming to town - where to take them?

Melissa | Feb 17, 2003 11:20 PM

Help! Please! My boyfriend (of one year - not like this is a make it or break it with him, but perhaps with his folks) has his dad and step-mom flying in from Chicago on Saturday and I need to figure out where to take them for dinner. Here's the thing - I've not met them before and they're fairly formal and refined. I want to impress them and take them somewhere that they can't go in Chicago (much more of a steak town than DC). I need somewhere upscale and not overly trendy. Any sugestions? I need it to be in DC. Was thinking Sequoia or maybe 1789. Want to steer clear of Asian (I love it, but they're going to want to go to a place that has great steaks for my boyfriend and great fish for them). Please! Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I'm kind of freaking out here. You'd think a grown woman would be ok with meeting the parents by now. Yeesh!
