DC area wheelchair accessible dinner for 4 tomorrow?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a place to take an old friend, his wife, and my boyfriend to dinner tomorrow night. The friend is a rehabilitating vet who was very seriously injured in combat and uses a wheelchair. I'd like to find a place that a) obviously, is accessible, but also b) has a welcoming vibe and is maybe more used to military folks with injuries coming in. Basically, I want him to feel comfortable and not like he's on display. A table a bit out of the way of the main dining room would be ideal.

As far as the food itself goes, it's less important- I would say on the inexpensive side (~15 for entrees) and I think any type would be fine; we're pretty adventurous eaters. The one consideration there is that some things on the menu should be easily eaten with one hand- no burrito or bbq joints.

(For some context, we considered Meridian Pint, but are worried that the vibe could be too rowdy, and the layout wouldn't really let us sit off to the side.)

Re location - we live in the Columbia Heights area, and they're at Walter Reed. Somewhere between the two (slim pickings, I know) or up into the Bethesda area would be great.

Thanks for any ideas!
