hey big spender...thoughts?

eating out | Oct 20, 2005 12:17 PM

So this weekend I have 3 nights to eat at the top-tier of restaurants that DC has to offer. I'm having trouble making up my mind, but here are my thoughts, I'd appreciate any help!

Nora v. Asia Nora- has anyone been to these lately and can vouch for one over the other? I've been to Nora, and it is fantastic, but i'm sort of curious about Asia Nora.

Galileo- I heard they have a White Truffle menu at the moment, and I'm tempted to try it... Would be eating in the regular galileo restaurant, not the laboratorio, most likely, although I suppose I could try the laboratorio.

Maestro- Have only heard good things, but still not convinced it's worth the money- I went to CityZen hearing the same good things, and left disappointed. Has anyone been lately?

I've been to Citronelle, and while my appetizer of 'belluga' pasta with lobster and egg and hollandaise was amazing, I wasn't impressed with the lamb or the rest of the entrees... I don't think it's worth going back...

Obelisk- After reviewing the board, it seems that most would pick Maestro over Obelisk. I'm going to stop by there and check out the menu, anyway.

Cashion's Eat Place- I'd really like to hear any reviews of this place, as i've heard mixed things... One said it the food was oversalted and oily... but it's really convenient to where I live so I'm thinking about it.

TenPenh/1789- I don't really know much about these two, so any thoughts are appreciated!

THANKS for helpin!!! I appreciate all recommendations and reviews!!
