I will be in DC for a conference and need a very nice restaurant with excellent food and service to take my VIP clients to. There will be around 7-9 of us.
While I say fine dining, I would like to eliminate stuffy places- and places where there is a very expensive price fixe menu and overly formal feel.
Money is not an issue- $40 entrees are expected. I would also like to steer away from ethnic places- trying to appeal to a diverse group here.
