A NYC chowhound here, in DC until Thursday with my family.
I am the real chowhound in my family - adventerous eater. But I gotta keep my wife and kids happy. We will be doing touristy stuff and looking for lunch and dinner ideas. We are staying at the Affinia 418 New Jersey Ave.
All of us like American, Italian, Mexican..... I know DC is known for Ethiopian, not sure how well that would fly with my children (ages 17 and 11) but might try it.
On the NYC boards I know this kind of question comes up all the time, and links to previous questions would be great.
Casual places much preferred
