Pre-opera please!

My friend and I have tickets to the opera at the Kennedy Center this weekend, which has an early 6:00 pm start time to accommodate the 4+ hour run time. Naturally, the first thing that came to my mind was how to fit in a good meal that would keep me relatively satiated until I could indulge in dessert after the opera. So, I pose this challenge to you:

Can you recommend a restaurant/tapas/wine bar that would serve at a late-lunch/early dinner time (4:30, 5:00?) for two young professionals on non-profit budgets that are thrilled to have the chance to dress up and be sophisticated? Location could be West End, Downtown, Dupont Circle, maybe Penn Quarter - anywhere around Foggy Bottom and/or Metro accessible so that we can grab the shuttle from GW to the KenCen in time.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
