I will be moving to Pentagon City in a month, right by the mall. Yes, I've heard that Pentagon City is a 'culinary wasteland'--but I'm hoping some locals can steer me in the right direction. I'm not looking for gourmet food, as I can head downtown for that. I'm looking for the basics--everyday eats in the Pentagon/Crystal City area. What are your favorite places for takeout and delivery? Is there a good Thai place in the area? Italian? Pizza? I'm open to all ethnic foods, and everything from dives to upscale.
I have a car, so while suggestions within walking distance are appreciated, I don't mind driving a few minutes. Thanks in advance.
