My SO has a milestone birthday coming up on a Monday night. We'll go out with friends the weekend before but I thought a nice birthday dinner (in the district) that night would be appropriate.
If I can get reservations at Komi (won't be able to call for a couple weeks still) for the night following, I will be willing to celebrate a day late. But if not, I'd like to take him someplace special on Monday.
He's been to Rasika a few times (though I have never been!) so not there. But otherwise open to ideas. We have done very little fine dining since moving to DC from NYC (our go to style is more gastropub or farm to table type stuff ... with Hanks being a seafood favorite) so likely anything you suggest will be a novelty.
