A close friend of mine is switching jobs, moving back into academia after doing the policy thing for a few years. She will be shifting from the "Golden Triangle" downtown (great location for food) out to near Catholic University (a location with which I am not too familiar).
I'm looking for someplace up in that neck of the woods where we can get a better-than-decent meal - price is not really an option. What I'm looking for is good food, decent wine/drink, good hospitality - a place where we can have a leisurely lunch on a Friday afternoon.
Also, my dining companion is partial to steak.
