Bakery/baker in DC for custom cake?

Not sure if he does unique shapes and replicas of buildings, but try Peter Brett

Fun place along U St for dinner?

What are your favourite places along U St for a crowd on Saturday night? Any cuisine OK, a fun atmosphere more important. Would like somewhere which takes reservations. Thanks!

Which Maui restaurant for wedding dinner?

For those of you familiar with Maui, I would love your input on where we should have our wedding dinner, following a ceremony on the beach. We will be on the west side of Maui (Napili) and want to stay around there.

Background: it will be a small wedding, less than 20 guests. I had previously made a reservation at the Plantation House, but recently there have been 2 terrible reviews on Tripadvisor, on how the Plantation House screwed up their wedding receptions.

Now I am wondering whether to switch to either:
1) Banyan Tree at the Ritz Carlton;
2) I'o restaurant, Lahaina; or
3) Mala in Lahaina.

Has anyone tried the Banyan Tree since it reopened? What is the private room at I'o like? And is Mala too casual for a wedding dinner? Thanks in advance!

Vosges Chocolate Bacon Bar

If you're still looking, I saw them at Baigio Chocolate on 18th St near Adams Morgan. They're on 18th between T and Florida.

Let us know how it tastes!
