I've received some interesting questions via comments and email lately about DC restaurants, so I thought I would post a couple here.
I greatly enjoy your Web site. I have a question about restaurants suitable for club meetings.
Our group meets each month on a Sunday, at a Washington restaurant located near a Metro station. We're a very new group and have held only two meetings thus far, the first at Café Luna, the second at Ben's Chili Bowl.
We'd like to hold our third meeting at another D.C. restaurant. I'm the one tasked with finding a restaurant but could use some advice. Any thoughts on reasonably priced places that might host lunch meetings? Many thanks for any advice you're able to provide.
Hmm, reasonably priced and near a metro station...
Working my way down the red line cause that's the only one I ever ride.
Cafe Ole is right up the street from me. Mediterranean tapas at very reasonable prices. Its about a 5 minute walk from the Tenleytown metro
Indique - Good indian food. Especially for lunch. They have a good lunch deal where you get a entree with rice, naan, and soup or salad for about $9 - $11
Vace pizza - takeout only - I'm not sure about their ability to host a meeting.

If you're willing to walk to Adams Morgan, Amsterdam Falafal wont do you wrong. Everyone loves that place.
Tryst (also in Adams Morgan) is a nice sit down place with couches and you can get sandwiches and coffee. WiFi enabled as well. They might be willing to host a meeting.
Heritage India is right at Dupont Circle on Connecticut. Excellent Indian food.
Pizzaria Paradiso is also at Dupont Circle, although the dining room is small.
If your willing to walk a little...
Osteria Del Galileo is the Bar area at Roberto Donna's Galileo. Pretty good italian food and very cheap. It's walkable from the Dupont metro down 20th or 21st I believe.
Spezie is a little bit more on the pricier side, but it is at 17th an L right on the Farrugut North metro. You won't find better Italian food in the city for the cost though.
Nirvana at Connecticut and K has a good Indian buffet (I'm told), although I've eaten there for dinner and wasn't too impressed.
Burma has great burmese food. Definitely in your price range.
Hope that helps.
(quoting my post about Faryab) "I ordered a beer since I can't drink a whole bottle of wine on my own now
that Amy is pregnant." Whereas, pre-pregnancy, you could?
Stop reviewing restaurants; I haven't even gotten to Afghan Grill yet and
already you're giving another Afghan restaurant a good review, plus it's in
my neighborhood. Give us a chance to catch up!
Pre-pregnancy, Amy and I would share. :)
I was able to top off a bottle of Pinot on my own the other night at
Corduroy. Luckily we were there for a couple hours and I ate a ton of
food, otherwise I would have been completely tanked by the end of the
Come on now...keep up. What's the hold up already? I'm only reviewing
1 or 2 restaurants a week here...
Thanks for being such a dedicated reader....
I noticed that one of my favorite spots (Yanyu) is gone. Argh!
Are they relocating? Is the chef going somewhere else?
No and No.
Sorry Bernice. It's gone. No more Big Duck - I'm sad. Spices is run by the same owner, but they don't serve any of the same dishes. I'm not sure why they closed, but there is a new Italian bird moving in. Hopefully, they're not going to be another Uptown tourist trap.
