Heading back to DC again in just under a month and (as usual) planning a relatively packed dining agenda. Still debating a few options, particularly Italian, and both Fiola and Elisir look excellent while Obelisk also intrigues me.
Aside from the obvious lunch vs. dinner menu items, and prices, does anyone have any experience with Fiola or Elisir and how the atmosphere, service, quality, portions, etc differ during the two times? If you could only do one, which would it be, and would you do dinner or lunch?
I'm more interested in pastas than secondi, but tasting menus like Elisirs also strike my fancy.
