Some help...My husband and I are visiting DC at the end of this month and are celebrating our anniversary. We would like to indulge in a special dinner that will blow us away. I have reservations at both Restaurant Eve and Palena. I have to say, first impressions, the person taking the reservations at Restaurant Eve was very warm and accommodating. She asked if it was a special occasion and ended the conversation saying they looked forward to our visit. The woman at Palena was brusque. I was leaning towards RE as I so enjoyed the book the Omnivores Dilemma and Polyface supplies Restaurant Eve.... I then read some mixed reviews and thought I should check with the hounders.
