New spots (for me at least) in DC? Rake's Progress? Elle? Maydan?

Annual family trip to DC and I want to make the most of my two dinners and 2 brunches in town. Any thoughts on Rake's Progress for dinner or brunch? Elle for dinner or brunch? Maydan for dinner? Never been to Dabney but will I like that?

I'm a NYC chowhound that really enjoyed my last trip to DC where I ate at Tail up goat for dinner and Le Diplomate for brunch. Was very impressed with Tail up goat actually.

Seems like Elle may be more of a breakfast spot? I've been to Woodberry Kitchen for brunch years ago and wasn't impressed but wonder if Rake's Progress is worthwhile. Maydan seems like a DC version of The Barbary, one of our favorites in London but is it worth the hype?

Any other spots I'm missing? Really just looking for meals I can't find in NYC. Thanks in advance.
