Hello! I'm staying at the Loew's L'Enfant Plaza and would love to get some recs for breakfast, lunch and dinner that aren't too far away. I'm willing to Metro it but not go so far that I'd need taxis (call me a paranoid woman, but when traveling alone I prefer not to take taxis). And since I'm alone, I prefer places that aren't as "romance-focused" so a more lively atmosphere would be great (at least for dinners).
I've been to Teaism and Jaleo on my last trip out and plan to head to each of those places at least once (if I don't find new alternatives to try).
I'd also prefer a mix of low budget breakfast and lunches so I can have a nice dinner that doesn't go too much above the $51 per diem (I'm willing to subsidize the cost myself to get some great food).
Thanks so much for any help!
