Rasika in Washington, D.C.
I may have posted about this place a couple of years ago, so forgive me if you've already heard me praise Rasika. I went back this week when I was in town and it's still fantastic. Probably the best Indian food I've ever had. The sauces have flavors I haven't tasted anywhere else. Their crunchy spinach is a must have. Their tandoori is excellent. Highly, highly recommended (but it's not roadfood - a meal for 3 cost us $89 with tip, and we had to go at lunch because they had no tables the previous night - call ahead!)
