I was invited to join my friends for a birthday dinner this evening. They arranged for the three of us to go to Equinox (by Todd Gray) in Washington DC.

If you are looking for place for a power dinner or special occasion, consider Equinox. Things started off well when the head chef himself picked up the phone when we called for a reservation. That level of service continued when our group showed up for dinner. The chef greeted us with a signature dish-deep fried risotto balls (delicious). Every other... More

With my boss who flew in from France, I discovered this gem by accident. Honestly one of the best meals I have had in Washington. The brussel sprouts that I ordered with my steak were to die for.
