My girlfriend and I are planning a weekend getaway from home (Alexandria!) with a Ritz Carlton gift certificate we received. We are looking for something within walking distance of the hotel (Georgetown location) where there is not too much stuffiness and/or brown leather (1789), not too much trendiness (MNU!>@#), but where the food and wine will excite us. Mendocino seems to be the top pick on the board, but I am hoping for something more intimate. I am thinking something Mediterranean or Italian that offers Atkins options (how pathetic!). Thanks in advance.
