DC for the weekend

My wife and I are spending this coming weekend in DC from Boston.

We are staying Downtown at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel and need a few recommendations.

On Friday night we are arriving late so we need a late-night recommendation, very open as far as type of cuisine is concerned and would be happy with a hole-in-the wall type place that serves excellent food.

Other than that we are staying through Sunday evening. So need some local tips for the following.

-Local Bakery that serves baked goods for breakfast on Saturday
-We will be doing the museum thing on Saturday so need a nice sit down lunch place near-by.
-Saturday night for dinner we want to try a restaurant that is unique to DC. Price is no object, but would like to find the perfect combination of great food and atmosphere. To give you an idea we love to eat at L'Espalier and O-Ya in Boston when we are looking for something more on the high end side of things.
-On Saturday evening would like to go to a nice Bar where the bartenders take their cocktail making seriously.
-Afterwards we are also huge Jazz fans, so any recommendations on a great live Jazz club would also be appreciated.
-Sunday: A great Sunday brunch, who serves the best brunch in DC?
-Sunday lunch: Looking for a rec on a great North African or Middle Eastern restaurant.

Thank you so much hounds in advance!!!
