I'm coming to D.C. this wkend with my SO, who used to live there. We have not been back to D.C. since Fall 2001, so we're pretty out of the loop. Our old favorites were Sushi-ko, Yanyu, and Nora, amongst others.
We will be in town for Fri, Sat and Sun. Friday we are looking for something somewhat trendy, but still with top notch food. For Saturday's dinner, food is definitely the emphasis, but we will be w/ my SO's parents and a few friends, so some ambience would be a plus. We don't need something moderately priced, but we don't want Citronelle-type prices either. Sunday we will likely want something low-key and not too expensive. A good brunch place would help too.
New places definitely encouraged, but old favorites work too. Since L.A. has such great sushi, I'd rather not do that, but we are open to pretty much all other cuisines. Thanks for your help.
