...and looking for some reccomendations, if anyone has time to guide a hapless New Yorker!
I'm not really interested in delis or steakhouses or anything extremely chi chi. And since I'm dining alone, being able to eat at the bar would be helpful too (i'll probably be dining on the later side, after 9 pm).
Browsing this board, i'm thinking of Ethiopean in Adams Morgan (Mekserem?), Sushi Taro in Dupont (I know, plenty of sushi in NY, but I just love sushi and hear this place is great) or maybe a soul food spot (suggestions?).
I'm also open to non-ethipean african food, but don't know much about it and have no idea where to find it -- though i hear DC has got some great options.
Interesting beer/wine/drinks a plus. Price not really an issue. And I spent a summer there way back when, so can get around easily on the metro.
Thanks all for any help you can provide.
