Marathon Weekend food

Katty1234 | Mar 24, 2013 04:05 PM

I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon in late October, and my husband and I are looking forward to eating in DC. We are staying near GWU. We are hoping to get some suggestions for
1)a low key but authentic Italian for the night before ( preferrably close by.) for the Friday night before we are also looking for some Italian or American style ( normally we are very adventurous but want to keep it milder before the race.).
2)We are also looking for a brunch dpot for after the race.
3) any lunch recommendations near where we are staying and or near the convention center--great sandwhiches, or casual are both ok.
When my husband ran this race a few years ago we ate at obelisk and loved it, if that helps as a point of reference...
Also, I am a pescetarian, my husband eats everything.
Thank you in advance for your help. Chowhound is definately the only site I trust for critical food advice!
