We'll be driving from NYC to pick up someone at Reagan airport in DC (on our way to mid VA) and we would like a great casual (bc. we'll be tired and cranky) food experience. I LOVE Vietnamese food and other Asian but we are very flexible and do not want to drive out of our way on the day before a holiday only to drive back towards the airport. (Did I mention that we will have driven several hours and will be cranky? ; ) ) In addtion, we would like to avoid cuisines that we believe cannot be done better than what is available in NYC such as thin crust pizza.
