One Weekend in Washington, DC


Recommended Posts

Cross posted on eG...

We're leaving the kids in the 'burbs with my mom and have booked a room at the Westin Embassy Row for the weekend of 6/17-19. In addition to sleeping in and ordering room service for breakfast :lol: we have a goal of eating several good meals. Dinner on Saturday night will be at Corduroy, and Friday we will probably hit Firefly for drinks. Citronelle would be an obvious choice but we're saving that for my birthday in July. ;)

We're considering several options for Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, and Sunday brunch - among them 2 Amy's for lunch and BdC for brunch. We will have a car, but would prefer to cab, metro or stumble back to the hotel. Any other suggestions? We might just skip a formal dinner friday and ramble around.

(Not food related but worth mentioning: I booked the hotel through hotwire.com. What an incredible bargain.)

Palena for Saturday lunch.

Start with a bloody mary ala Palena with the house made pickle. If it's a beautiful day sit on the patio and enjoy the day. If it's a rainy one cozy up together in a booth. The artichoke and fontina panini is amazing, as are the donuts.

Tosca at the bar and then cocktails on the rooftop of Hotel Washington.

Unrelated: I always thought Little Fountain Cafe is a great spot for clandestine affairs.

Late night cocktails at Mantis.

Do you smoke? Can you take smoking around you? Then off to a tiny lounge of Russia House (Conn. and FLorida) for supercozy couches and late-night drinkies. Advantages: stumbling distance to BdC and your hotel.

Get takeout from El Pollo Rico or some other great ethnic hole in the wall and have a picnic if the weather cooperates. Blanket + food = friskiness!!
