    There's also Rosa Mexicano, right across the street from the Verizon Center (Gallery Place Metro).

    I'm going to recommend my other two choices, which was Clyde's or Lauriol Plaza.

    I was going to recommend Lauriol Plaza but I'm not sure that it's metro accessible. Is it? I've only been there once and we took a cab. If it is, great! I'm fine with Clyde's too.

    looks like U Street is the closest metro but then you have to take a bus

    Lauriol Plaza is walking distance from Dupont Circle (maybe 5 blocks or so). I made sure to pick places that wouldn't require having to get on a bus after getting off the train. ;)

    But maybe we should choose between Rosa Mexicano and Clyde's since they're literally right there at Galleryplace.

    If Lauriol Plaza is only about 5 blocks away, let's keep it in. I should have known you wouldn't choose some place inaccessible; you've done this before! :oops: I guess it's time for us to make a final decision. Either place works for me.
  • deedlesdeedles Registered Users Posts: 2,467 Curl Connoisseur
    The menu's for Rosa mexicano and Clyde's look Yummy and the other plus I see for Rosa's is we can reserve online!!!

    LOL! It's all good.

    Let's just focus on Rosa Mexicanos and Clyde's. I'm fine with either as they're both within a block of each other.

    So far, Rosa Mexicano is winning by 100%

    Probably because I'm the only one to vote so far! :blob4:

    Dammmmmmmmmmmmm.......!!!!

    I'm not going tobe here on the 7th.

    I'm going to be out of town in the arms of my new man out of state.


    Damn! Damn! Damn! a la Florida Evans.
  • eccentric_kurlzeccentric_kurlz Registered Users Posts: 4,151 Curl Connoisseur
    LMAO! @Hakim. It's all good! We'll have another one...in the Spring. ;)

    At this point D, I'm just going to make an exec decision since many years ago, we'd just pick a place and that was it. It's too close to the actual date to rely on a poll as when I did the poll last time, it was 2 months in advance, and even then, everyone didn't participate who actually attended. LOL!

    We're going to go with Rosa Mexicano. I think the menu is diverse enough to accommodate various palates. :)

    I'll update the first posting with the information.
