I am coming to town this weekend from NY. I am in a wedding (Sat afternoon) and am getting together w/friends and fam after for dinner. Everyone seems to want Italian. I lived in DC years ago but am not really up on the current food scene. I did some site searches and the two above restos seem to fit the bill. Is one better than another? Anything else that you would rec? I really appreciate the help and would be happy to repay with advice on Montreal, San Fran, London, Venice, Dublin, NYC (all places I've lived). Thanks for making the trip a success from the food side of things!
