If you and your partner had 2-3 hours on a Saturday night to get a drink, a few appetizers, and a dessert, where would you go? Ideally it'd be (1) three separate places within walking distance of one another, (2) in DC, Arlington, or Alexandria, and (3) generally quiet enough to have a conversation without yelling.
We like: (1) a good cocktail and/or beer (Rogue, Victory, or Founder's for example), (2) just about any type of cuisine with a range of textures, spices (heat is ok!), and veggies/meats, and (3) flavorful but not necessarily super sweet desserts.
I recognize this could be a challenge; I over- rather than underspecified our preferences. Any suggestions are welcome!
