Visiting DC next weekend with my husband, who has never been there before. We're thinking of going to Jaleo because he loves Jose Andres/Made in Spain. I last dined there in 2000 or 2001 - is it still good?
We also plan to check out the U Street corridor one evening and are looking for suggestions there. I've heard that Local 16 and Marvin are good - true?
Any suggestions for a truly DC restaurant and bar are also welcome. I went to college there, so it's been a while! I remember loving Eighteenth Street Lounge, drinks at the old Hotel Washington (W Hotel now, I think) and feeling very fancy when I grabbed a drink at the Willard.
Will be staying in Dupont but visiting the Mall, Georgetown, National Cathedral...all the usual spots. Any recommendations welcome! Thanks in advance!
