Five Dinners in DC [Staying Downtown]

Emme | Jun 4, 201208:32 PM

Hi all,
I will be in DC next weekend from Friday night through Wednesday afternoon. Staying at the Hyatt on New Jersey Ave. I'll be spending days at the Walter E Washington Convention Center, and am trying to sort out my dinners. The first night, Friday, I'm all on my own (which is GREAT... means I don't want to waste my solo meal since there will be no cowtowing). I was considering a number of places, but I'll get to that at the end. At least one night I'll be with another adventurous eater, so I'm more inclined to go somewhere more expensive, for having someone to share the experience. The other few nights I will be with a less adventurous, sometimes finicky companion. She doesn't do sushi or things she doesn't know. I love her, and find her abominably frustrating at the same time. So, what I'm seeking:
1. Some suggestions for outstanding fish and/or sushi (pricey and less)
2. Some suggestions for casual, easy, light
3. Places for salads
4. Places that accommodate allergies
5. Places near/between/in walking distance from the Hyatt and the Convention Center - won't have car, and willing to take transportation, but would like some places close in case we're tired
6. Good markets -- sometimes I like to picnic a meal :)

What I've found or been suggested:
Hank's Oyster Bar
Palena - the cafe
Wanted to try very badly but don't think these will work with companions:
Rogue 24

If I can provide any more info, let me know! And if you come to LA... I'm happy to throw in suggestions :) Thanks in advance, and promise to report back!
