Dupont Circle

Looking for good dinner and brunch places. Coming to town for two nights and open to exploring other areas of the city as well. Price is no object and we like all kinds of foods. Casual or fancy....we just want good food with a nice atmosphere. Thanks!

Birthday Dinner

I agree with Rocknroll. Bellini Grill is not on par with your other choices. It is decent food for when you want something BYO and casual and dont want to make a big deal over dinner.

Not what I would want for a birthday dinner.

Deciding between 4 Phila Restaurants-help!

Twenty Manning is an excellent choice. The food is great and the atmosphere is fun. Bistro Romano is subpar food that is overpriced.

Terrible attitude at Quattro S Beach

I agree with you on the service. We went while in Sobe a few months ago and one of the diners with us has allergies and requested a different sauce on the meal she wanted ( a sauce that was on many other entrees). She was told the chef does not change his menu for anyone and our table could pay for our drinks and leave if this was a problem. The food that we did have was not so great and not worth the attitude.

Help with a whole night of delicious, mellow celebration

Eric Rupert recently opened a restaurant in the Ritz Carlton and the food is amazing. It is a really great experience.

"Normal" food?

I dont know if this fits the bill but Jones. I know its a Starr restaurant and a little trendy but the food is plain old american, and while it isnt amazing....it is very good

Sobe restaurant decisions

I will be visiting Sobe in a few weeks and have narrowed it down to a few places for dinner. Hoping to get feedback to make sure I made good decisions and that I am not missing anything.

1. Sardinia (after all the wonderful Chowhound reviews I am very excited!)
2. Altamar/Grillfish for a good casual seafood meal
3. Rosinella
4. Ago
5. Wanted to go to Joe's but just found out they will be closed....any other places in the area that are similar?

Comcast Center: Lunch at Table 31

The pizza is the best bet there. Having said that, the service is not very good and it is very expensive for what it is.

The cocktail list is not very good, you would do better elsewhere for cocktails.

bachelorette party dinner

I prefer La Viola over the choices you have listed. They do large parties and the food is very good. The newer one La Viola "ouest" is much larger.

Casa Tua and Tuscan Steak...Opinions

A friend recommended these two places from her last visit to Sobe. I don't see either one mentioned that much on this board so I thought I would get opinions.

Staying at Delano and need restaurant recommendations

I will be staying at the Delano in a few weeks and want a few recommendations for dinner. My main requirement is that I can walk (about a 12 block span). All types of food are welcome and price is no object. Just good food and good service.

New Comcast Center

Not everything is open yet. Open food places are: Dibrunos, Japanese food, la scalas (brick oven pizza), produce and seafood. Termini is also open. It is something to see.
