My husband and I just got back from a trip to DC and I thought I'd post some reviews of the food.
We went to CityZen last night. The best meal that I have ever had. In any city. Unbelieveably awesome. Pricey, but totally worth it as a last pre-baby, 30th birthday dining splurge. My husband counts it in his top three meals ever, but believes that AME in San Francisco still tops the list. He's wrong.
Zaytina. We went there for lunch yesterday and everything was fabulous. Very resonable prices (approximately $5-$10 per tapa and 3 tapas per person was more than enough for lunch).
We went to Citronelle on Monday night. It is overrated and overpriced. Good food, but we've definitely had better food for less money. I wouldn't go there again unless it was on the company's dime.
We went to Obelisk on Saturday. Very good food with very reasonable prices ($65 for a 5 course menu).
