Be my sommelier.

I'm having dinner at Cafe Atlantico in WDC later this (restaurant) week. What should I order? What kind of wine should I get?
The menu is here
. Is it worth it to get the $65 (or actually $130 since there will be two of us) tasting menu, or just stick with the choices on the $35 (=$70) restaurant week menu? I'm leaning towards: the tuna, the duck, and the chocolate.
And the wine list is on the "to drink" tab here
, but I think I'd rather bring in a bottle (not too expensive, say under $20) and pay the $20 corkage. What wine would you suggest with the tasting menu or with your recommendations on the rw menu? Red or white. Or a "signature cocktail"?
FWIW: No specific special occasion, just the infrequent splurge on fancy food and wine so I can keep up with the superficial chatter of people who make more money than I do.
