I will be returning to DC to host a small dinner party celebrating the commitment of a former college roommate, to another following three divorces. we will be 6 people Saturday July 14th looking for dinner. Looking for fabulous seafood of any cuisine, delicious wine and the ability to hear each other's conversation. Price is not an issue. We all have cars and downtown D.C. would be an easy commute for all involved. A 3rd party (not invited to this little gathering) suggested Oyamel or Blacksalt. - I welcome any suggestions!
Thanks! Jan

Oyamel is pretty loud. Not been to BlackSalt.

What about Proof? Excellent wines, good food.

I really hate loud restaurants so I am with you. I have been to Blacksalt twice (though not in the past couple of years) and really enjoyed the food. The tables are relatively close together but I do not recall the noise level being a problem.
