I graduated from college in DC a few years ago -- my friends are now taking a trip in August and asked me to give them some recommendations. My "favorite places when your parents are in town" were Butterfield 9 and DC Coast. Do you have any new suggestions? They are not adventerous eaters so anything with seafood and steak (and not prepared too fussily) would be great. Also if you can think of good lunch places; my old favorite was Peacock Cafe. Many thanks in advance for keeping me current in DC eating.
