We will be visiting family in the Bethesda area and don't know the restaurants. I'd love to have the time to compare reviews on here and TripAdvisor to the restaurants available on the gift certificate website, but can't.
Has anyone used restaurant.com and happen to know which are the worthwhile restaurants in the area to get certificates for? We eat anything mainstream (american, japanese, mexican, vietnamese, etc) and just like good quality food. Where we are now (not near a big city, in Canada) - there's not much in the way of good food... So we're really looking forward to it!
We'll also be north of Philly so I'll check some things there, but know that area very well and will save the pizza and steaks take-out for that leg of the trip! The family in MD/DC unfortunately can't help, it's very elderly relatives.
Oh, and aside from what's on restaurant.com - I am craving a really good bagel - what's the best place in the vicinity?
