Hubby has been traveling nonstop for 6 weeks now. Although we do still go out on Sat nights i was wanting to plan something REALLY special for when he returns home for good. I am trying to erase all of my own notions based on where i've been, what i've eaten, etc and get some unbiased recommendations from the most food savvy people in DC. Therefore, here are my criteria: Romantic atmosphere (no loud children or whiny tourists in hawaiian shirts,), good service, really yummy food (but nothing too weird, hubby isn't a fan...), really great wine by the bottle list. Prefer DC but willing to consider 'burbs like Alex or Bethesda (not I.A.L.W., too far). No specific type of food, just something really good. And valet parking. If there is a dish one really HAS to order, please state that as well!
thanks for your ideas!
