Parents Coming for the Weekend

Not going this weekend but the weekend after.

Right now I'm leaning towards Hank's or cava mezze for saturday.

Sunday is difficult because so many things are closed. Elyssa mentioned Central but it's closed on Sunday too.

I didn't know they'd finally replaced that bad place, (park cafe?). I'm definitely going to have to check out Ninella even if it's not the weekend my parents are in town. Thanks for mentioning it.

I've heard about Ambar. Have to check it out. I've never had Serbian cuisine before.

I looked at Birch and Barley and it has a different Sunday night menu where it's basically the brunch menu and they add some dinner options. That's the only thing that caused me to pause.

My parents are coming to visit for the weekend and I could use a couple of recs. They've been to DC before and we've been to Proof, Jaleo, Montmarte, Sonoma and a couple others.

Saturday night we're going to twelfth night at the Folger so I want to stay in the area. Was thinking about Chesapeake Room or Hank's Oyster Bar but have read some good things about Bistro Bis.

Sunday has been a little more difficult because Rasika isn't open on Sundays (i'm hoping to go saturday for lunch). I'm looking for something in the $20-$30 entree price range because I don't want to feel so guilty that I end up offering to pay the bill. They're pretty adventurous although my mom doesn't think my dad is open-minded enough for Ethiopian. We're also looking to stay downtown-ish (think south of rock creek park and south of U st.) because I'd like to walk around some of the monuments at night with them while also accounting for the fact that they fly out Sunday morning.

Thanks in advance for the recommendations.
