I am looking for a place to take 4 or 5 people on Thanksgiving day 2011.
The kicker is this- one person going will only go to a place that has some sort of simple beef dish with a potato type thing. This person is really looking for the most simple of beef dishes. I believe a filet just cooked with no sauce, no marinade, no spices, no herbs, etc is their favorite thing and they like it with a potato and or perhaps a simple iceberg salad.
This persons wife has already said no to- 701, Oval Room, Bastille Alexandria, Blue Duck, Acadiana, Vidalia, the Majestic, Virtue Feed and Grain and a few others.
I just do not know what to say or do about this one. Everywhere that I know of in the area is not going to feature such a simple type item. Unfortunately if this person does not go then the meal probably will not happen. I also usually eat seafood so I'm not familiar with good beef places.
All of the other folks are more open minded for food however some are not totally open. I think the other folks would want some sort of turkey traditional entreee. I get the idea that the picky eater wants to go somewhere like Daniel O'connels in Alexandria but places like that are always closed on Thanksgiving.
We will be touring Mt Vernon that day so somewhere near Alexandria or Northern Virginia would be easy. However I have no problem going to DC and then we can roam around there. I guess I would consider MD for the right place.
I already thought about eating at Mt Vernon, as I am sure you can imagine, that is not possible they are booked solid.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or hints.
