I'm coming in for the swearing in, down from NYC.
The Metro website is recommending waiting out the massive crowds that will be swarming the stations right after the ceremony by "having lunch."
Okay! I'm thinking I should probably walk at least a mile (and would prefer walking no more than three miles) away from the Mall to get away from the crowds, and will eventually need to get onto the Orange line out towards Vienna/Fairfax. Can anyone recommend a bistro/cafe, not-a-chain restaurant with good food and pleasant service that's in that radius?
Many thanks in advance!
