I am a frequent visitor to DC for work reasons and find myself in the area a coming Monday in August.
Typically I am at the mercy of others for Lunch and Dinner choices, but outside of a couple meetings I will be on my own for Breakfast, Dinner and Cocktails at night.
I am staying at the Renaissance Downtown and this is what I have come up with so far.
Breakfast: Flight arrives into IAD at 8:30am. Thinking about checking out Blue Duck Tavern.
Lunch: Working Lunch, venue to be chosen by someone else.
Dinner: Leaning towards "The Pig". This will be an early dinner during happy hour as I will be catching the Nationals Game afterwards. For reference two of my favorite places in DC are Central and Estadio. So any other suggestions are welcome.
Cocktails after the game: The Passenger. I seem to end up here alot and love it. If there are any alternatives let me know, but the fact that its great and walking distance from my hotel makes it a good option.
