Mediterranean | Van Ness, District of Columbia

My husband I I brought my mother, who is 84 and hard of hearing, to Acacia on Saturday night. Much as I enjoy live music, I was dismayed to see a jazz trio letting up, as we arrived, because I was afraid we wouldn’t be able to hear each other speak. The staff quickly sized up the situation and led us to the patio, where we sat in a gentle summer breeze, listening to muted but still enjoyable jazz in the background, and conversing over delicious bison kebabs, glazed salmon, vegetables, and salads. It was a delightful evening in an unexpected oasis in the city. More

Mexican | Shaw, District of Columbia

We went to Espita Mezcaleria as a group of 6 for an early Sunday dinner. The food and drinks were all outstanding, from the salsas all the way to the entrees. Our table was definitely the rowdiest, but I think only because we dined on the earlier side. I would highly recommend and definitely plan to return. More

Steak | Downtown, District of Columbia

Of all of the times I’ve come to this establishment, it seems as though the waiter kept forgetting about us. Once we received our food, he didn’t check on us. We waited for awhile before he came back to order drinks with our food and it took long to bring it. In addition, when we were ready for desert, he took a 15 minutes to bring the desert menu. I hate to complain, but the service could have been better especially after I boast about this restaurant to my partner. More
