      The ultimate indulgence is Table 21 in the kitchen, where Voltaggio crafts a 21-course meal as up to eight diners watch.

      The high-end boardroom decor and hefty price tags signal an expense-account spot, but the house-made pastas and hearty ragus infuse the place with some soul.

      An open kitchen and a stone waterfall are the focal points of the room; terra-cotta walls and dim lighting lend a cozy feel. Service has been spot-on—attentive and friendly but not hovering.

      Sitting at the sushi bar and watching the chefs do their deft blade work on hulking slabs of fish, making edible art with Zen-like calm, provides some insight into what makes Sushi Taro special.

      When diners aren’t gazing out at Lake Kittamaqundi, they’re studying the sushi bar, where chef/owner King Lin and his team of cooks assemble the area’s most inventive rolls.

      The winding, soaring space in Chevy Chase is dazzlingly modish, but we prefer the original, a tiny two-story dining room that’s an exercise in cool minimalism.

      • Washington, United States

      The bar, which stirs a mean dried-fruit Manhattan, attracts a crowd of off-the-clock thirtysomethings, Verizon Center–goers, and tourists. Chef Ed Witt's pastas and well-prepared meats are big draws.

      Chef R.J. Cooper’s all-tasting-menu venture—parceled out in 16 or 24 quick-bite dishes—is a wild ride of a night, especially if you don’t burden it w/ too many expectations of what dinner should be.

      You can count on good burgers and soups but the standout dish is the most out-there: a salt-rimmed margarita glass filled with lime-marinated bay scallops, tequila ice, and sour cream.

      Steakhouse
      • Silver Spring, United States

      Steaks are of very good quality, from the $19.99 hanger to the $35.99 rib eye called a cowboy cut. They no longer come with free sides, but in steakhouse land, $5 for mashed potatoes is a steal.

      Dishes at Ashok Bajaj’s dining room are always elegant, but there’s also a playful side to chef Tony Conte’s food. Take the butternut-squash soup with olives and banana? In Conte’s hands, it works.
