South Beach with my 87 year old Dad (who has celiac disease)

Have you tried The Dutch? I called them and they were willing to accommodate a gluten-free, sweatpants wearing octogenarian, but I'm wondering what the atmosphere is like? And if it's worth the expense? Thanks!

South Beach with my 87 year old Dad (who has celiac disease)

Thanks for the different recommendations. I really appreciate it! Monty's in particular seems like a great recommendation - I was totally unaware we could sit on the marina, and my Dad will love watching the ships go by. Thanks again to all of you who replied.

King Crab Legs in MoCo

The Bethesda Crab House has them - very very very casual (if you sit outside, you'll sit next to a dumpster).

South Beach with my 87 year old Dad (who has celiac disease)

I know this is a crazy specific situation, but I'm taking my Dad for a few days to South Beach (he did WW2 and went to the University of Miami on the GI Bill). He's a lovely, sweet guy. I want to feed him well. He has celiac disease so...I need some recommendations of places to eat where we can get plain fish, chicken, rice - nothing too spicy. And nothing too loud or too hip. I made a reservation at Milos (our one splurge). Anyone else have any ideas? I already asked Milos if it would be okay that he'll most likely be wearing sweatpants (pulled up over his belly button!) and a University of Miami windbreaker. They said yes :) Thank you for any advice.

Carry out (dinner) for an age-diverse crowd

Thank you so much. Yes, it is an Easter dinner. We used to have a pretty good home cooked meal every year, but this year the focus is way more on getting together and way less on the food - as long as it's good enough food and there's something for everyone, no one really minds too much about the details. Both suggestions are great and I wouldn't have thought of either - thanks again!

Carry out (dinner) for an age-diverse crowd

My family is getting together for Easter - the challenges include two octogenarians (one with celiac disease), multiple kids (all under 8) and a pregnant woman (who hasn't been feeling too hot lately). Getting carry out seems like the easiest thing since we can order a bunch of different dishes and hopefully meet everyone's needs. I'd prefer to pick up something in the Friendship Heights area and also don't want to spend a fortune. I know this is a big challenge, but I'm sure some of you brilliant chowhounds can help me out. Thanks!

Where to eat after drinks at the Experimental Cocktail Club (Rivington and Chrystie)

That's great advice in particular about the atmosphere at Stanton, thanks. Shrieking isn't what we had in mind. What have you had at Peasant that you liked? Anything on the menu that is mandatory eating?

Hi small h. We are looking to maximize our dining experiences. So we're not really pigeonholed into a particular cuisine or price range. But we're coming from a (reportedly) fun lounge and will be dressed nicely so we're not necessarily looking to eat a hole in the wall either. Soba sounds intriguing since, other than sushi, Japanese cuisine isn't huge in DC. Would you recommend Corcoran over Stanton Social (which was recommended to me by a friend today) and both Soba and Peasant over Stanton? Thanks so much!

Ah LES, I mss you so. You have changed drastically since I moved to DC in 2004. I'm back for a visit...heart palpitating out of my chest, NYC is my motherland. Okay, my husband and I are getting drinks at the Experimental Cocktail Club at 8:30 on Thursday. I think we're going to try to find a nice spot for dinner in relatively close walking distance (I'll likely be in heels and don't want to break an ankle). Can anyone recommend a wonderful dinner spot in the neighborhood that would provide us with a memorable meal? Or maybe not-memorable given how many cocktails we'll have likely consumed in the hours before dinner....I tried getting a res at WD-50 to no avail. But c'mon LESiders, help an expat out, there has to be a hidden gem we can hit up.
