I was reading the Washingtonian's list of best DC restaurants yesterday and realizing that there are still so many places I keep meaning to check out that I still haven't been to, even leaving off places like the Inn, Komi, Minibar, and Table 21 that are either rather expensive or borderline impossible to get into.
Equinox was near the top of my list already, and I've made plans to have dinner there soon. Same with Cashion's. Next on the list is Palena and, believe it or not, Ray's the Steaks. I can't believe I still haven't been to Ray's the Steaks! And 2Amys.
I'd also like to check out Marcel's and Corduroy this year - whenever I make plans to go to either place, some conflict always arises.
Also, what kind of restaurants would you like to see open in 2011? I'd like to see a good deli or two in the downtown/Penn Qaurter area and more well-priced restaurants with a lively and vibrant atmosphere, like Matchbox or Carmine's.
