Brits Visiting DC

Hi, I am a British student, interning in DC for a semester. My family are coming for a 7-day visit in a few weeks time, and I'm trying to plan the best places to go. As an unpaid intern I'm excited about trying some slighty better (read more expensive) places, but at the same time I don't want to go ahead and book the priciest places in the area!
My first question is: they arrive on a Friday afternoon, and are staying in between Farragut North and West in terms of metro stops (they may have a car). We want to go out for dinner somewhere nearby. I don't think that a Friday night is the best time for them to experience Georgetown or Adams Morgan! So I was thinking the Dupont Area, the Penn Quarter or Chinatown are all fairly close. We are all adventurous eaters, but one wont eat sushi, and I don't think we want Italian. Any suggestions?
I've been reading the boards as much as possible to find some good options for me and for them! Thanks everyone.
