Hi there, newbie here. Still in the early info absorption stage, just barely oriented.
We're coming next weekend and staying near the mall, doing the Smithsonians (as many as we can last) and holocaust museum. I see that our hotel is seemingly in a food wasteland--some delis but they are all closed for the weekend.
If we wanted to have a good but not overly dressy dinner Saturday night, what would be a good area to choose? We will have access to a car but I'm not clear on whether that's a good idea, I assume parking is iffy anywhere there is good food? I'd like something modern American and gastro-pub-ish, or failing that a REALLY good burger. (I'm a fan of fine dining but my companions will not be interested in dressing up, so I'll settle for something delicious.)
Thai would be a possible alternative. We live in an area with dismal Asian food, so it wouldn't be hard to impress us.
Thanks in advance.
