I'm a Boston hound who visits relatives in DC a couple times a year- lately I've been trying take advantage of their offers to babysit, so that I can try some of the great restaurants in town. We're planning our next trip, and I'm hoping to get some opinions on where to go. On our last two trips we visited CitiZen and Maestro, based on Chowhound comments. We enjoyed both places- we had an outstanding meal at CitiZen, and a pretty good meal at Maestro.
From reading all the postings on the site now, I'm thinking that we might want to try Citronelle, Laboratorio, or possibly Minibar. Any comments on which of these places might be more favorable right now (in Boston, at least, the restaurant scene is very dynamic and the restaurants that were good a few months ago, may not be good today), or on other places you might like better would be appreciated.
