Solo dining in NOVA or DC

ErikaH | Jan 16, 2013 05:24 PM

I will be in the DC area for a few days in February and will have a couple of evenings on my own. I'm looking for a great place for solo dining (kitchen bar would be perfect) that is close to a Metro station (I'll be staying in Arlington). I'm from the PNW (for those of you who know Portland, I love Tabla, Pok Pok, Tanuki, Le Pigeon) and would prefer something that's definitively DC-ish -- whatever that means. I prefer beer to wine, bold flavors to subtle, and a warm ambience to white linen. I'm omnivorous, but don't tend to order a big hunk of meat on my plate (unless it's fish). The only things I don't care for are some organ meats. I'd appreciate any ideas, and promise a trip report. Live music (particularly Americana/blues/folk) would be a huge plus. OTOH, tasting menus are fun, too. Ideas?
