I am active on the Manhattan board, but I am visiting DC from Sunday early afternoon to Wednesday late afternoon. I am taking the train. And am staying at the Gaylord in National Harbor, MD.
Not sure exactly what meals I will be on my own for, but definitely lunch on Sunday and Wednesday and probably one dinner will be wide open, one dinner may be with others. Lunches will have to be near the hotel.
Questions: 1) How to get from train station to hotel?
2) What to eat?
Cuisine: I like most Asian cuisines (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai); Italian; American and a lot of others. I am adventurous! If three is food that is really good and special to DC, I am open to most cuisines
Cost: I won't say money doesn't matter, but I'm on vacation as well as at a conference. Say, not more than $50 for my lunch (pre tax and tip) and maybe about $50 or so for dinner.
Dress: I will be wearing slacks (either khakis or jeans) and a dress shirt
Location: Lunch ideas near hotel; other ideas either walking distance or metro or cab (I don't drive)
