Whoops! Waited too long to try for a reservation at Ray's the Classics with the predictable result that there are are no available tables for Saturday night until 9:30 p.m.
Other than Ray's the Silver Spring restaurant scene is totally unfamiliar. Where else should we consider? If it helps you with your recs, we're at the AARP end of the Chowhound crowd. We'll also be casually dressed after attending a movie at the Silver Theater.
