I'm looking for a unique and upscale dining experience for a foodie husband's 40th birthday dinner in Baltimore or DC. Something maybe where you "eat in the kitchen steps from the famous chef" like the Laboratorio de Galeleo in DC used to be. Any cuisine would be fine.
If there is nothing like this in Baltimore or DC anymore, what would be the best place for an excellent meal in swanky surroundings (kitch is fine if the food is great) close to a downtown area.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
