Henrietta Red is one of the nicest looking restaurants we’ve ever been to, with two very attractive bars and a dining room that’ll make you wonder, “Could I go to Ikea and recreate this in my apartment?” Besides it being beautiful though, this Germantown spot has a great raw bar and serves a variety of great Mediterranean food cooked in a wood-fired oven. It’s an ideal spot for getting a group of friends together when you need a place that everyone will undoubtedly like. If you’re visiting for the weekend and pressed for time or just come solo, head to the barroom instead for cocktails and oysters.
