I am going to be in town for a conference on Sunday and Monday. The conference is at the international trade center, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave and I'm staying nearby (which I gather is not the most exciting area in the world). Can you recommend a couple of places that might be fun for dinner? I'm particularly interested in places that have great food served not only at tables, but at the bar since I will be alone. I don't want a "bar, bar" (I have zero interest in being picked up. Just want to have a nice meal by myself i.e., without my 2 yr. old twins!) I'm not looking for any specific type of food -- I'm willing to try anything. Price is not an issue. I'm willing to take a cab or subway to some place special. Thank you very much for your advice. I haven't been to DC in over 10 years and I'm looking forward to seeing how things have changed.
