"great food at lunch prices"

soccermom13 | Jan 15, 2011 05:01 AM

I saw this phrase in a post by Keith E (thanks, Keith) and realized that I'd love your suggestions for terrific food in the DC area that is available at lunch prices for a Friday or Sat. lunch. I am still paying for kids' college tuition hence the need for frugality . So what will I pay for a terrific lunch? Probably $30. or so (30 without wine or other alcohol).

Some criteria:
**No sushi or Ethiopian (I get lots of great Ethiopian at home)--virtually anything else is fine
**Must be accessible via the Metro/walking (I have no car)
**Not in the 'burbs (just takes too long to get there via Metro)

Some places I already plan to eat at:
Rasika, one place with good Southern food (not sure yet which one), and ???


Rasika Restaurant
633 D Street, NW, Washington, DC 20004
