I know. It is alot to ask. A place wonderful enough to celebrate a 50th anniversary, that will be open DURING the day on the holiday Monday, that will also tolerate (or better) two well-behaved kids, ages 7&9. (They won't be crying or throwing things...) Doesn't have to be fancy but has to be very good, special eats.
We live just N of the District, but the others are up toward Annapolis so any location to north and east will be considered for this special occasion. THANKS Chowhounds!
