Affordable tasting menu in Baltimore? or possibly DC?

Looking for a place to take my boyfriend for a special birthday dinner in Baltimore.

I've been searching for restaurants, and looking over menus, and nothing is jumping out at me.

We recently had an unforgettable meal at a restaurant in Pittsburgh (Toast! Wine Bar) where we opted for the tasting menu with wine pairing. We loved being surprised by all the delicious and unique dishes served to us, getting to try so many things instead of choosing one entree, and the wine pairings really accentuated everything. Everything was absolutely perfect, and I think the total bill was around $200.

I'm wondering if there are any good restaurants in Baltimore that do something similar. I was thinking of taking him out in DC, but while there are a few restaurants offering tasting menus, they tend to be higher-end than I can afford (probably ~$400 for two with drinks/apps and dessert). I adore my boyfriend, and I'd love to treat him to a dinner so extravagant someday, but right now I'm in graduate school and it's just not reasonable.

Any suggestions?
