Low-brow dinner and drinks tomorrow

tentimesodds | Feb 22, 2008 12:59 PM

Hi all,

I've recently had a birthday (27) and will be going out to dinner with the girlfriend tomorrow night to celebrate, and then will be joined by 10-15 friends for drinks. We are not foodies, but do enjoy good food. Does anyone have any suggestions for Arlington, Dupont Circle or Chinatown? (no Adams Morgan please)...

Food: We're simple people. No haute cuisine, no foie gras, nothing fancy. Places we like include Matchbox, Bebo, Ray's the Steaks, Clyde's, Old Ebbitt, Zengo (about as far as we go on the fancy-meter).

Drinks: Laid back, bar not club, no cover, no pretension. We like Fado, Buffalo Billiards, Rocket Bar, Ragtime.

Thanks all...I know this is an unusual request in a sea of French bistros and wine bars, but we are simple folk.
