Looking for a place for my daughter and I to eat for Mothes Day
What do you like? You do realize that every restaurant is packed to the gills (as they say) on Mother's Day. Do you want expensive? Downtown? Out of the way?
My favorite for Mother's Day, because it's all reservations (and no crowds that never seem to get in) is the really nice Restaurant at (like 20 feet from) Mount Vernon Virginia, G. Washington's Plantation. You may even be too late already to get a reservation, but it's great, and the only people showing up are those with reservations, and they don't overbook, as far as I can tell.
Do NOT confuse this with Mount Vernon Square in the District.
For a closer to Downtown lunch, try Fiola Mare in Georgetown; they also won't have crazy crowds waiting at the entrance, and they won't compromise on quality. It's expensive but you will never feel like you wasted money there.
If mom is "young and foolish" at heart, how about food trucks near the National Gallery of Art? Make a picnic on the benches (no picnic tables); even those trucks can have lines, but you're having family bonding time and I haven't been to a bad one yet.Edited: 11 April 2018, 02:55
"Drag Brunch" at Perry's is always fun.
Is daughter a newcomer to DC? She probably has a good idea of where she has always wanted to go but can't afford :^))
Thank you for the ideas. My daughter is 11 and every year we travel somewhere different for Mother’s Day. I looked at Fiola but I don’t think I looked at Georgetown. Will check menu out. Picnic by food trucks sounds great too. I personally would like a mimosa or two so may do food truck lunch on Saturday. What about a steak restaurant for dinner one night? What is a good Sushi option. Thanks!
