My husband and I have a babysitter booked for tomorrow night, and we haven't figured out what we're doing yet. I kept hoping I'd have some epiphany about where we should go, but that hasn't happened yet. Of course I love to eat out, so that's always a good fallback, but my husband isn't nearly as into food as I am. He enjoys food but would be happy with a big ol' steak for most meals. I'm hoping someone can help me with a restaurant suggestion in case we can't think of anything else to do! Here are some parameters: Most cuisines should be OK with the exception of Ethiopian. (There may be others I'm forgetting.) We live in Silver Spring, so a reasonable drive from there would be ideal. (I'm thinking no Georgetown, Arlington, Alexandria, etc.) We'd like to spend under $200 with alcohol. We like to eat at the bar, so as long as we can get bar seating somewhere around 6:30 or 7pm, that's fine with us. My husband has recently become interested in cocktails (though he's not super adventurous), so a good cocktail program would be nice (but it doesn't have to super high end or creative). My husband isn't a fan of small plates and wouldn't do well with a tasting menu. Here are some non-steak-focused places we've enjoyed together (or at least my husband didn't hate :-)): Woodberry Kitchen Fork and Wrench Dino's Grotto Red Hen Central Trapezaria I think the reason I'm overthinking this a bit is that we recently had a date lunch at The Partisan, which I thought he'd like because it's so meat-centric, and he was annoyed when he ordered the doner dish and there was by his reckoning way too little meat on his plate. I guess he expected a huge pile of meat for the price. Anyway... If anyone knows of anything non-food-oriented to do tomorrow night that isn't already sold out, I'd be interested in knowing about that, too! Thanks in advance!
