NO Restaurant Week - top picks?

Thanks, all helpful. I have been to RWs for years, where I live in LA, or during my 15 years in DC - so I know what I am in for on RW - and I am just as likely to just order off the non RW menu if it does not work for me.

We are only there for the weekend - so thanks for the tips.

Wedding at DC Hotel for foodies - St. Regis, Hay Adams, The Williard or The Madison?

100 people - more or less..

Wedding at DC Hotel for foodies - St. Regis, Hay Adams, The Williard or The Madison?

that is great information. We are concerned about the Hotel food...

We have gone through most of the venues - and the time of year, availability and all the moving parts make the hotels more attractive. We are still consdering the Decatur House and the Women in the Arts Museum, but leaning toward the hotels. It is also far less costly in the end. while the venues charge for the space (about $12,000) the hotel deals we are working on do not.

Wedding at DC Hotel for foodies - St. Regis, Hay Adams, The Williard or The Madison?

We are planning a DC wedding for October, but neither of us live in DC (I just moved to LA from DC after 15 years) - and we cannot get there in time for taste testings. We are deciding between four hotels that are pretty comparable on most levels (would love any insight), but are unclear about the quality of the food. We really need some help on this. It is a hundred person wedding and we would really love top-notch food.

Thoughts?

St. Regis, Hay Adams, The Williard or The Madison?

Thanks!
