My parents are coming to D.C. next weekend and I am taking the train down from NYC to meet them. None of us are at all familiar with D.C., and I would love some restaurant recommendations. Neighborhood and local favorites would be especially good, though my dad isn't a huge fan of ethnic cuisine, so little French places with really good food would be ideal. Nothing fancy or too expensive, between $30-$50 a person would be good, and they have to have a full bar. We're staying at Capitol Suites, 200 C Street, so things in that area would also be good.
PS (Please don't tell me to read through the boards -- I am a regular visitor to Chowhound but I don't keep up with the D.C. posting and I really don't have time to skim through all the old postings. Much appreciated)
