Hello DC Hounds!
I'm heading down to your fair city in mid November and would like to know where I should hit up for dinners. We're going to be a group of around 7-12 and will be in the downtown (Convention Center) and Dupont Circle (our hotel). We are an adventurous bunch of eaters (all into "ethnic" food as we're all ethnics anyways) and need at least 7 recs from all you. Our budget is for around $50 per night for the complete dinner (not including drinks). I'd really like to see at least a few recs for good "New American"/"american fusion", asian, italian, southern/bbq, indian and persina restos. We'd like to stay near the convention center and the hotel (or a $10-20 cab ride for something really special). It would be ideal if there are bars/pubs near the recs, as we'd like to stay late into the night nearby to drink and talk.
Thanks for the help!
