The next time you get promoted or have a big date – or you and your friends randomly want to eat someplace that looks nice in photos – check out Chloe in the Navy Yard. While the restaurant itself is very sleek and elegant, all but three dishes on the menu are $20 or less, so it’s possible to have a fancy meal here that’s not outrageously expensive. Their small plates are great, but make sure to get multiples of each so that you’ll have more than a bite. We really like the crispy fingerling potatoes and the glazed butternut squash salad, along with the spice roasted chicken, but it’s hard to go wrong with anything on the menu.
