After three great years in the D.C. area, I moved away in 2003. I'm going back next month for the first time since my move.
I have a good handle on my old favorites, but I'd appreciate suggestions on exciting new places that have opened in the last couple of years. While I'm primarily looking for D.C. suggestions (esp. downtown and DuPont), I lived in Alexandria, VA and would be excited to hear about new good things in Old Town.
I'm pretty open on price and types of food - I know this is broad, but I'm looking for the best new places I've never previously visited.
