I am stumped. My birthday weekend is also inauguration weekend. So that to start eliminates a number of restaurants due to crowds. I want to do a dinner with a group of friends but not everyone can afford an expensive meal. My goal would be to keep the entree between $14 and $22. The other part of the challenge is that I am interested in a restaurant that is not somewhere I would just go for a casual meal with a friend after work as it is my birthday. Finally, the goal is to go out to dinner and then out to a bar or something. My friend and I have thrown around several options including: Perry's and Tabaq Bistro. Any suggestions you recommend would be greatly appreciated.
