NYC hound new to area needs to convince wife good DC food exists

Hugo | Feb 10, 2006 09:12 AM

... and on Valentine's day no less!
Living in Rockvile, or whatever you kids call Rockville this week. (It's cheap and I'm outta there and going to DC/VA as soon as I sell my pad in NY)

Am in the process of moving down to the area. Wife is making first visit next week. Dipping her toe to test the DC waters, so please be gentle. Need two night's suggestions: Monday 2/13 and V-day 2/14.

Have been having trouble locating good food.

Tried New Height's and Occidental during DC Rest Week.
Liked NH. Didn't like Occidental.
For Bethesda restaurant, went to Grapeseed and Centro.
Loved Grapeseed and I've been back since. Centro was good but I prefer more 'traditional' Italian.

Thanks !!!

PS- A waitress at NH told me Green Field Churrascaria makes a mean caipirinha (a little liquid DOPA goes a long way on V-day, no?). It's really close to me. Anyone ever been?
