My wife and I have plans to meet my parents in DC for a weekend in September and I'd love some restaurant suggestions. I'm an NYC hound and haven't been to DC in years, so really don't know where to start looking.
We are staying in Dupont Circle, but will certainly travel for food.
On Friday, we're hoping to find a DC institution with great burgers.
Saturday is a little more flexible. We're looking for top-notch food in an unpretentious environment (if you're familiar with NYC, I'm thinking something Blue Ribbon or Gramercy Tavern). Probably American, but French or Italian would be good too.
