Parents Coming for the Weekend

beancf6 | May 23, 2013 05:03 PM

My parents are coming to visit for the weekend and I could use a couple of recs. They've been to DC before and we've been to Proof, Jaleo, Montmarte, Sonoma and a couple others.

Saturday night we're going to twelfth night at the Folger so I want to stay in the area. Was thinking about Chesapeake Room or Hank's Oyster Bar but have read some good things about Bistro Bis.

Sunday has been a little more difficult because Rasika isn't open on Sundays (i'm hoping to go saturday for lunch). I'm looking for something in the $20-$30 entree price range because I don't want to feel so guilty that I end up offering to pay the bill. They're pretty adventurous although my mom doesn't think my dad is open-minded enough for Ethiopian. We're also looking to stay downtown-ish (think south of rock creek park and south of U st.) because I'd like to walk around some of the monuments at night with them while also accounting for the fact that they fly out Sunday morning.

Thanks in advance for the recommendations.
