My British-Chinese uncle will be in DC this weekend. As he can get fantastic ethnic food in London, he's not as keen on getting Chinese, Thai, or Indian here, but he did request to try something more "local".
I live in Baltimore, so Baltimore-style crabcakes would fit the bill, but driving back up to Baltimore's a bit of a pain and I'm not sure whether I can find those in DC.
Maybe Jaleo? What about steaks or seafood?
What other restaurants might fit the "local" taste that he's seeking?
I'll be picking him up from the Capitol Hilton, so anything within a 10-15 minute drive from there is ok.
