DC Metro Center Lunch

Hi Chowhounds,

Some working professional friends and I all are centered arond the Metro Center, Chinatown, McPhereson area for the next few months and would like suggestions of great places to have a casual lunch. We're not expensing this (unfortunately!) so we'd like to keep costs down, quality up and only hit places with seating, if possible.

Thus far we've been to:

Devon and Blakely (delicious but limited seating)
Chop't (How many times can I eat this in one week?)
Mix't Greens (Slow slow lines, less options than chop't,but I like the real silverware)
Cheff Geoffs (Getting pricey but nice lunch specials)
M&S Grill (Yetch, I had TERRIBNLE fish tacos)
Cosi (I hate this place.. it all tastes the same)
Au Bon Pain (Limited to no seating, bland)
Ollies (Greasy, but delicious)
Pret a Manger (Colleague doesn't like refridgerator case sandwiches)

Any suggestions? We would be up for ridiculous steal lunch specials, and I have to have faith that SOMEWHERE in DC there is a cheap and delicious Chinese lunch!
