Coming in from DC. Will be eating alone on Fri Night.
Avid chow-seeker from NYC. Love eating when I travel. Hate eating alone at a table in a fancy restaurant.
My requirements are:
-Most importantly, a place I can eat alone comfortably. Eg, a suitable bar to eat at, or a place where there are small tables up front, a place where you pick up food at a counter, etc...
-All price-points considered, but value is considered; in other words, if I'm going to drop $100 before booze, it better be a world-class place. No problem spending $10 if that's the best bet, either.
-No car, so only areas that can be walked/Metroed to are possible. Willing to go into the burbs or to the other side of town if necessary, but the farther the trip, the better the food should be to be worth it. I'm staying in the Fairmont, which as I gather is 5 blocks from the Foggy Bottom station.
-All cuisines considered, but anything distinctively of the area would be a nice bonus.
All help appreciated!
