My parents are coming to town for a week, which is good for me because I'm a poor intern whose meal quality has fallen this summer. I'm looking for places they can treat me. Everything is fair game. Spicy and exotic are great, and upscale Western cuisine is also good.
We will be centered in the Adams Morgan area. Anything that doesn't require a metro trip out of the district is acceptable, but close to Adams Morgan/Dupont Circle is ideal. Ethiopian need not be mentioned as I've been to many. Also I've been to most restaurants in Woodley Park (and btw, while some are "OK," if you want to recommend them we're probably not on the same page).
Less than $20 is ideal. Thanks!
