My family will be visiting DC in a couple weeks. We're staying at the Omni Shoreham and will make great use of the metro.
Can you recommend good, but casual dining options. Not 4* jacket and tie, just solid places with good food. Bakeries/ice cream spots appreciated as well. We'll be spending time at the Smithsonian, Capitol, Library of Congress, Holocaust Museum, and monuments at night. Open to anything we can easily get to by metro. We like all types of food. So far Palena (in the front room) and Ray's The Steaks have caught our interest.
Thanks for any tips and advice.
