My fun loving foodie friend and I are flying down from NYC to witness history! We're flying in Monday 19th, flying back Tuesday, 20th at 7:30pm. However, neither of us is terribly familiar with the area.
Can we impose on our DC Chowhounds? Monday night dinner: we're staying with friends in Arlington, but are happy to travel via metro / taxi for excellent food (any cuisine), a good wine list, in an area we can hop to live music after dinner. We're staying out as late as our eyelids will stay open. Hoping not to exceed $100/pp and to avoid getting mangled by college crowds.
A boozy casual lunch after the swearing-in? We know there's a two mile pedestrian perimeter surrounding the Capitol. Any suggestions within that boundary or walking distance of a nearby subway station?
