I am visiting DC for the first time in a few weeks, to visit a friend and see some museums. She lives around Dupont Circle/Georgetown, and I will be visiting the Smithsonian museums. I've heard that there are not a lot of good places to eat around the National Mall/in the Smithsonian museums.. any advice?
Looking for fairly inexpensive (entrees $20 or less) places to eat: I will also be looking for a place to take around where my friend lives or work (World Bank) to take her out. She hasn't been there long, so doesn't know if well..
