I'm coming back to DC to visit friends and family. But, for some strange reason, my brother who lives in Arlington, wants me to pick the restaurant for dinner on Sunday night?!?!?! I have good memories of Adams Morgan for good ethnic food, but that was 20 years ago! We love Thai, Indian, Latin American, Italian, etc. Seafood and tapas with a good wine list are favorites for me. I know Georgetown is hip and so is Bethesda now, but how do I pick a cool restaurant?!?!?! Any suggestions for something not too pricy nor too fancy! Frankly, an ethnic Latina dive with good sangria would make me smile a lot! He says that he doesn't know of a nearby Jaleo's (which is not a dive, but has good sangria).
I would love some ideas to share back at him!
