Headed to D.C. for a conference mid October, and looking for dining options for two nights. Thursday night, the weird Crystal City would be preferred, Friday night we're def willing to actually head downtown.
Actually had decent Thai food in CC last time I was there....
Pretty much open to most cuisines (good Italian, Middle Eastern, Greek, Turkish, Vietnamese, French...), just can't be too expensive (going with grad students/post docs who don't have lots of money).
Thanks, and sorry I can't be more specific.... please don't yell at me '-)
