Dh really likes these, and today is his birthday so we're going out to dinner. I'd love to take him to a place with beef ribs, most places seem to only have pork.

We're in western Prince William county (Bristow). Tonight we've only got a very limited babysitting time, but if you have any suggestions for anything close to us, I'd love to hear! Even if the place you'd suggest isn't particularly close, I'd love to hear! We'll try it out some other night!

Thanks!

Probably too far for tonight, plus reservations would be needed, but both of Michel Richard's restaurants in DC have a killer beef short rib. He's won the James Beard award in multiple categories and is one of DC's best chefs. The restaurants are on the expensive side (ok, Citronelle is very expensive), but they're a great food experience for a special occasion.

Citronelle - Downtown Washington DC Restaurants & Georgetown Fine Dining - Michel Richard Citronelle
Short Ribs, Texas Prime, braised 72hrs with raisin peppercorn sauce, served for 2 - $66

The ribs are cooked Sous-Vide style for 72 hours! How can you go wrong with that? Citronelle is quite pricey, but the food is fantastic. The desserts are incredible as well, actually everything is good here. You'd need a reservation for the main restaurant; however, usually the lounge and bar area is open for walk-ins, and you can go there to order the ribs and a few cocktails.
Central Michel Richard- Washington DC Dining & Restaurants In DC - Central Michel Richard
Short Rib with pappardelle and syrah sauce - $28

Great restaurant with a lively atmosphere, several of their dishes are fantastic. They have other tasty dishes too, such as a Lobster burger, and I like to recommend this place a lot for a fun restaurant.

Rocklands is good but that's a long trek from Bristow. So that doesn't help for tonight but keep them in mind if you're ever in Arlington or Alexandria. Tell him happy birthday.
