A group of us from Boston and Toronto are meeting up in DC Labor Day weekend. We are arriving Saturday Afternoon and then heading out Monday afternoon. We are staying either in the Capitol Hill or Downtown area.
On Saturday we would like a quick and cheap lunch place downtown while we are sightseeing around Capitol Hill, any type of cuisine is fine just as long as its quick (Counter service would be perfect)
Saturday Night: What is the best Ethiopian in the U Street area?
Sunday we plan on visiting two museums, starting off at the Holocaust Museum and then ending up at the Museum of Natural History. Any recommendations on a nice bakery for breakfast near the Holocaust Museum and then a Lunch recommendation near the Museum of Natural History would be appreciated.
Sunday Night: We are pretty flexible on this night as far as type of cuisine is concerned, anything from American to Ethnic is fine. The only criteria would be a lively atmosphere, good cocktail menu, a little on the trendy side and most importantly great food of course. We would also like to keep the entrees under $20-25 range.
Monday: A really great breakfast place.
Finally we would like to try out Ben's Chili Bowl sometime during the visit, what is the best time to check it out and avoid the crowds and line up as much as possible.
One note in conclusion, we will be carless and relying on the Metro and our feet, so all the restaurants would need to be Metro accessible.
Thank you very much in advance!
