Going to see Streetcar Named Desire at Kennedy Center next week and would like to begin the evening with a spectacular meal. Also would be open to other recs, but these are the spots near the theatre that I haven't tried yet. Where would you spend you money?

Also, anywhere I can get fresh Chicharrón?

Thanks everyone. I was hoping that there would be some roadside cart that fried it up fresh and sold it in in large plastic bags, like in Mexico. Oh well, maybe I will buy a fryer and try to do it myself. Can't wait to check out the Americana Grocery.

Best Tres Leches Cake in the area?

Thanks for all the great suggestions! Can't wait to start trying!

I have found the packaged vaiety at latin american groceries, but would love some freshly fried chicharron!

I prefer the name of a bakery where I can order and buy one, but if you know of any restaurants that serve a good one, that would be geat info too!

Romantic Birthday Dinner for couple from DC

My husband is taking me to New Orleans for my birthday in April and would love suggestions for a romantic special occasion dinner. After going through some old threads, we have a short list; Galatoires, Bayona, August. Opinions? Food and atmosphere are equally important.

We already have tentative plans to go to Bon Ton Cafe for regional fare on another night.

We are staying at the Ritz, proximity is not a must however walkability would be lovely.
