I'll be visiting a friend in Rosslyn, Va., near the Newseum in June and hope to scope out early the good places to eat in that area across the river from Georgetown.
Inexpensive is a plus, takeout is fine -- we can't afford chic -- but midpriced meals once in a while we can handle. I love to try different ethnic foods, but my friend is less adventuresome. (He's learning.)
I'm hoping to find some good restaurants within walking distance in Rosslyn between the Potomac and Arlington Cemetery, then increase the radius and perhaps fan out to eateries close to some nearby Metro stops or right across the river in Georgetown.
I'll be making several trips to D.C. this summer and hope to eat my way -- gradually -- down any list of suggestions.
