Best Big Birthday

Editors' Pick

Macon Bistro & Larder, whose name and menu are inspired by towns of the same name—Macon, Georgia, and Mâcon, France—blends the seasonal menu of a French restaurant with the warmth (along with the grits, greens and biscuits) of a Southern eatery. For an extra special birthday celebration, book a private party in the Magnolia Room, where Georgian grace meets industrial chic. The room, tucked behind the restaurant in the historic Chevy Chase Arcade, features a wired sound system—perfect if you want to show a video or slideshow—and a full-service bar. Chef Jamie Pridemore can craft a custom five-course tasting menu for 10 to 50 guests, or a cocktail party for up to 75.
