Restaurant suggestion in DC for casual semi-business meeting

RSJ072778 | Feb 20, 2009 03:27 PM

Hi there. I'm looking for a DC restaurant suggestion for next week. Though I live in the area (Mont Co), I'm having trouble coming up with a place to take a professor out to a semi-business dinner, and was hoping to find a good suggestion here.

This is what I'm looking for (generally; I'll certainly take suggestions that don't fit the bill exactly, but might be close):

-moderately priced (dinner for 3 with a bottle of wine to run something less than $120, excluding the tip)
-casual, comfortable atmosphere - nothing too "trendy" (I don't want a place where I'll feel uncomfortable in my non-designer shoes with my non-designer purse)
-but good food, and not your typical chain restaurant (I like Clyde's, particularly the comfortable, casual atmosphere, but would rather take my guest somewhere a little more interesting)
-warm and inviting, but not so loud that conversation is difficult
-within short walking distance to a metro station (so, a restaurant in Adams Morgan or Georgetown, for instance, would be out)

I'm open to just about any cuisine, with the exception of a place that's seafood or pork centered.

If there's anything I can be more specific about, please let me know. Thank you very much for any suggestions!
