Best Thai food and other resturants in D.C

I'm in D.C. now with five days to go and we have not had a great meal out yet. Please suggest a Thai restaurant near Rockville. Italian, Korean, and any other favorites in any location. We also need a suggestion for great seafood in Annapolis tomorrow.

Thank you,

Hungry for some good meals

Sala Thai is a Rockville/Bethesda favorite. Also Taipei-Tokyo is a popular hangout among the Asian in-crowd - they now have three restaurants. If you're looking for places with local character, AV Ristorante Italiano on New York Ave (Convention Center Metro) in the District is a long-time favorite (Jack Nicholson and Antonin Scalia have been spotted there). The Orleans House (Rosslyn Metro station) and Blackie's (Farragut North Metro) are great local places for meat lovers. If you're looking for seafood, the Market Inn is a local family-owned seafood house in southwest DC, right in the shadow of the Capitol, but if you want to go to Annapolis for seafood, Buddy's Crabs & Ribs (at the head of the City Dock) is where we take visitors. Order the steamed crabs - forget about the ribs. And for GOOD inexpensive Korean food, get a car and head down to Annandale - the only "local" Korean restaurant, Woo Lae Oak (Pentagon City Metro) is way overpriced, IMHO.

Another vote for "Sala Thai." If you like Vietnamese food, try to get to "Taste of Saigon" (see locations below).

In Rockville, many people like Tara Thai (next to Sports Authority on Rockville Pike) or Tara Asia (in the Rockville Town Center next to the Regal Cinema).

For other restaurants, I would recommend Mama Lucia's in Federal Plaza. They have great, moderately priced entrees and excellent pizza. It's a local chain, but the one in Rockville is the best IMHO.

If you can find it, Cantlers is a good crab shack north of Annapolis. Had 6 supers the other day and it was more than enough for two of us. The hushpuppies and fried clams and bucket of beer might have been a factor as well.

I downtown Annapolis, I always go to Middletons Tavern. Oyster shooters, if you are in to that. There is a small sushi restaurant up the road to the State house that is good as well.

In DC, try Olives for Italian
