I am coming to DC in November for vacation. I need a recommendation for a dinner with my girlfriend on a Saturday before going to a performance at the Kennedy Center in DC. I will also need a recommendation for a place for dessert after the performance as well. I will be staying at a hotel by the Courthouse Metro station in Virginia. I am willing to spend up to $150 in food/drinks for 2 before gratuity. My girlfriend and I are up for any type of cuisine.
Based on my budget and what I read here on Chowhound, looks like Komi, Citronelle and Restaurant Eve (tasting room) is out of the question. I was able to get a reservation at Rasika, but I'm not sure if that is the best place to eat at considering all of my options in DC.
Any help that you can provide would be great.
