What to Wear to Dinner This Fall.

By: Jen Shoop

Gosh, it feels good to write that title. It is not lost on me that just over a year ago, we were still tiptoeing around on tenterhooks, pondering whether it was safe to hold Thanksgiving. And the year prior, we were more or less marooned in Manhattan, desperately warming our hands around whatever we could find that brought us small sparks of joy — a good bottle of champagne. A new nap dress. A burger ordered in from Polo Bar. The latest episode of “Only Murders in the Building.” Breaking bread with friends felt like an ultra-luxury. That year in New York was interminable. And yet here we are, on the other side, tilting our heads this way and that as we wonder what to wear to dinner. We are amazingly resilient.

Today, sharing some favorite looks for dinners OUT. A few of our favorite restaurants in the D.C. area, in case you’re local and looking for a reason to get out of the house: Rose’s Luxury, Crane, Black Salt, Maydan, Hank’s Oyster Bar, Pizza Paradiso, Rooster and Owl, Spanish Diner. We also recently ordered a fabulous (delivery) burger from Duke’s Counter and want to pay a visit IRL — we were impressed. More of our favorite things to do in D.C. here, and — because I’ve gotten a few queries along these lines lately — some of our favorite NYC spots at the bottom of this post.
