I have the opportunity for a sort of meet-and-greet with a DC Chef coming up- any advice on places to meet for a drink?
He's not hiring, but it's still a chance to network. I'm also fairly soft spoken, so the place would be fairly calm but not deserted, classy, comfortable, and easy to get to with parking nearby... even a hotel lounge would be great IMO. Maybe the Mandarin-Oriental? Any and all suggestions are welcome!
