my sister will be picking me up at national airport tonight and we'd like to have dinner and/or drinks in dc. (my flight gets in a bit after 9...i'm coming from ny, so this is good eating time to me, but i don't know if it's a little late for dc restaurants.) good food, of course, but also a place with good energy for two young women, upbeat and convivial...and won't break the bank (though it doesn't have to be "cheap").
i perused the board a bit and am thinking dc coast might be a good choice. what do you think? (is it easy to get to from the airport?)
or are there other place you'd recommend?
many, many thanks
