Recommend: elegant, spicy, bold near Georgetown?

pleezd | Feb 19, 2005 07:03 PM


My wife and I along with another couple will be in DC for a wedding on the last weekend of March, and are looking to make some reservations for our one free night there (Friday).

We will be staying in Georgetown (~Pennsylvania & 24th) and are looking for something either walkable or cabable. We won't have a car, and would prefer not to deal with public transportation (though I don't even know if that is convenient to where we'll be staying).

In terms of what we're looking for....

something nice...elegant. It needn't be haute-cuisine, but while I appreciate good food in any situation, I can't say the same for my fellow diners -- so ambiance/decor counts for a lot too ;)

price level is flexible, but we would be ok spending up to maybe 150/couple. That could go up a bit if necessary. Lower is obviously a bonus! A tasting menu of some sort would be great.

I know there are lots of great restaurants in DC, and tons which probably fit these criteria but I'm having the hardest time finding one which fits these and also serves the type of cuisine we're looking for...

specifically, something with really strong, bold..spicy flavors. We're not really in the mood for some esoteric french concoction with foams, gelees, and 'delicate' flavors. Maybe an Indian-fusion? Or thai, or malaysian...etc. I don't know if I'm being clear enough, but hopefully you all catch my drift.

I think that's all the particulars, but can clarify if anybody has any questions....

thanks for your help, and looking forward to visiting your fine city!
