I don't know if it is really historic, but the Trio Restaurant at 17th & Q NW is not far from your likely hotel and has been there for decades. http://www.triodc.com/History.html

FYI, the only thing really historic about the Old Ebbitt Grill is the name and maybe some memorabilia. It's current location is at least the third place it has been located.

I don't know that you can necessarily describe a restaurant as "historic" simply on the basis of staying power. For pure history buffs, it's hard to top the Wok and Roll in Chinatown, which is located in the former Mary Surratt boarding house where the Lincoln assassination plot was hatched.

The Tabard Inn is located in an old rowhouse. Does that fit your criteria?

There's an inn on Mass Avenue --maybe around 13th? Morrison House? It's historic -- a Victorian - and may have a dining room. I think Tabard Inn would be nice.

The Iron Gate was across the street from Tabard and was a carriage house/stables - you ate at tables with brass plaques still bearing the names of the horses. There was a grape arbor in the outdoors dining area.
