I'm coming to DC in May for the Slain Peace Officers Tribute. Because the trip encompasses Mother's Day weekend, I have to haul along my three small children, PLUS my mom and her husband. Mother's Day brunch at the hotel (Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City) will run us $550. Eek. No thanks. Do you have any ideas for us (besides leave the kids and mom at home)? My mom says we should go to a Chinese restaurant because they don't jack up prices for Mother's Day. I don't know the area at all so I am at a loss and kind of desperate.
We're in town for five days, one of which is our anniversary so a couple "nice" restaurant recommendations would be great. Since we have small kids, I also welcome more family friendly restaurants. For me, I don't care so much about ambiance as long as the food is good. I love all types of food so I'm open to anything delicious.
I've read so many reviews here of places I'd love to try, but I have no idea what places might be close to our hotel. Since we won't have a car, please let me know if there are any good places that are walking distance or a short cab ride. I think my kids really want to try the subway too. You do have those, don't you? I guess that's way off topic though. Sorry. :) We haven't ever been to DC and are so excited about the trip!
Thanks so much for your time.
