Returning to DC after 4 years, new places to try?

Hi Chowhounds,

I lived in DC until 2004 but have been gone for a while. My brother, who lives in the area, recently got engaged to a lovely woman and I want to take him out to dinner to celebrate. The places I miss (Full Kee, Krupins, 2 Amy's, Greek Deli, Moby Dick's, 4 sisters, Carolina Kitchen) aren't entirely what I'm looking for. Well, I'd go to the Greek Deli if it was open for dinner, but sadly its not an option.

I know that DC has had a restaurant explosion since I left, and the choices are exciting but overwhelming. Since I haven't been around or talking with the hounds here, what's good and whats crap? A few places for a nice, but not too fancy, celebratory dinner? The District would be preferred, but gems elsewhere are ok too.
