NY Hound Working in Crystal City

big o | Sep 3, 2004 11:26 AM

Hello, folks. My company has placed me down in Crystal City for what may be awhile, so I'm looking for some good lunch recs. The office is by 26th and Jefferson Davis (so, near the Chili's/Matsutake/Legal Sea Foods cluster).

Up on 23rd, I've been to both Thai places. I enjoyed Urban Thai -- the lemongrass soup and pad thai were both quite good, and they made both items notably spicy at my request. Top Thai was okay, but their soup that day was so-so at best. Both places served the exact same, horrible cocount ice cream, though.

I've also been to Lebanese Village (good grape leaves, nothing special about the souvlaki) and Sinplicity Cafe (really nice sandwich, neat-o habanero potato chips, and fantastic ice cream).

So, what else is worth going to? Is 23rd my only walking-distance option?

Thanks for any help.
