"Special" is vastly different for everyone. There are 100+ places that could qualify. Do a little online research and come back with your 5 top places.

If you are looking at Citronelle, it is closed for approx. 6 months due to damage at the hotel where it is located.

What's your budget? What's the occasion? What are your likes/dislikes in terms of food and ambiance?

I am in DC for a conference and have one night on my own to have dinner with my wife. Budget is not a major issue, but looking for a place that combines great food, atmosphere, and service. The 1789 is one place that I have looked at, for example.

I have not been yet, but I have heard some really good things about Plume in the Jefferson Hotel. Definitely special. http://plumedc.com/

My vote would be for CityZen but it's very expensive.

The Washington Post food critic listed his only 4 star restaurants: CityZen, Komi, Citronelle (presently closed), Rasika, Restaurant Eve (Alexandria) and Inn at Little Washington (90 minutes or so to the west of DC).

Maybe the Tabard Inn (http://www.tabardinn.com/restaurant/).

The ambiance is wonderful and last time I ate there the food was excellent. It is also near the Dupont Circle Metro Station.
