A friend is in from out of town, staying in the vicinity of 95 and Franconia for a business trip. Thanks to Chowhounds, we've already hit the Capital Grille in Tyson's on his way from Dulles, and the deservedly acclaimed China Star on Tuesday (my first time). I'm in the Baltimore area, but I hope to get down that way to meet up and have dinner with Doc tonight or tomorrow (maybe both). Any other suggestions for that vicinity? I don't think Doc's a crab fan, but seafood, Mexican or Central/South American, or perhaps some European cuisine might be a nice choice, given that we've already done steak and Asian this trip.
Also, we're both OK with anything from "hole in the wall" on up to "special event" places - we're in it for the chow!
Also, since he's from out of town, and I'm not often down in NVA, please give me a hint of where any place you suggest is located, so I can figure out in advance how to get there.
Thanks in advance!
