Hip place to bring parents Friday night?

jamiechiri | Mar 7, 2011 12:25 PM

My parents are coming to DC for their annual visit, and I need to make a res somewhere on Friday night. I love my parents, but hate choosing restaurants for them. I obviously like to go out to eat as well, so I'd like for it to be somewhere fun for me to try too!

-Full bar, fun atmosphere
-Must take reservations, they will freak if they need to wait more than 10 mins
-Moderately priced - $20-25 for an entree is ideal...not a place where entrees are consistently above $30
-Not sushi, not entirely seafood (dad is "allergic"), not Indian, or French
-Parents like American, tapas, Spanish/Latin, Asian influenced (just not sushi), Mediterranean. They like those flavor profiles, but nothing that is too stuffy or "weird"/gourmet or rich (hence no French)
-Location...coming from Arlington and would like to go out in DC, pretty much anywhere in the city is fine except for far away neighborhoods like SW, etc

Thanks for your help!
