I have a first date on Monday around lunch time. The requirements are as follows:
a. Must be Metro-accessible.
b. Should be fairly well lit. I have a vision problem that causes problems in restaurants you'd typically think of as "romantic". Plus, like I said, this is a first date, anyway, V-Day or not. (That is the right attitude, isn't it? :-))
c. Should be quiet enough for conversation but not so quiet that I feel like everyone else is listening.
d. I work near Union Station and she works around 13th and U, so...I dunno...something downtown or near U, I guess.
e. I don't want to have to wait long for a table. If that means I need to schedule the lunch for 1:30, so be it.
f. I'm willing to spend $80 or so for two, but I'd prefer substantially less. 8^) Hope this isn't close to being a problem for lunch.
Cuisine is mostly unimportant, although ethnic is slightly preferred.
Thanks a bunch.
