Week long vacation in DC...NEED HELP!!!

NSL | Nov 15, 2006 06:31 PM

My boyfriend and I are coming to DC for a week long vacation in mid-to-end of February. We're staying downtown Sun-Wed nights and staying with his family in Georgetown Thurs & Fri nights. We haven't booked our hotel yet (we will be staying in downtwon), we will have a car but prefer to use the metro/cab/bus so travel really isn't an issue. When making recommendations please keep in mind that we will be in town for a whole week so we can't spend $200+ on every dinner. Pretty much any type of cuisine, although I would like to stay away from steakhouses and italian as we have plenty at home (unless there's one that's OUTSTANDING). I would also like to stay away from any place where khakis and a sweater would be considered unacceptable attire. We have a hard time deciding on food (usually pick what we're in the mood for at that moment) so places that don't require a reservation (don't mind waiting) would be a plus.

1. Breakfast (must have good coffee)
2. Lunch (preferably near touristy places as my boyfriend has never been to DC before)
3. Dinner (no chains, no tourist traps)
-Wednesday night we are going to the Caps game so something near the arena would be nice
-We're not sure what time we will be arriving Sunday afternoon/evening so something that doesn't require reservations (and good for the road weary)
-One night I would like a nice romantic dinner for the two of us
4. Bars (we are not the club type, more hole in the wall type place where we can play darts)

I've been reading a lot of the posts on this board and for some of the more recommended ones addresses and websites would be a huge help.
