SF chowhounds (2 families) coming to DC with the kids and staying in Dupount Circle/Foggy Bottom area for a week.
The adults wanted a special night out without the kids so I booked Citronelle. Now the men are complaining about packing a sportcoat/slacks/dress shoes for just one night.
You know us Californians........we're spoiled, even the best of restaurants don't require more than repectably nice attire.
Are there any recommendations for a special dining experience that we don't have to get so dressed up? I don't mean jeans, just tasteful for a nice evening out.
