Recs. for restaurant near Kennedy Center

I'm taking my 13-year old daughter to the Kennedy Center on a Friday night and need some recommendations for a casual, yet nice restaurant. She likes Italian, Mexican, American, Chinese. We're taking the metro so something between the Foggy Bottom station and the Kennedy Center would be great.
We had lunch at Jeffrey's in the Watergate Hotel (now the Swiss Hotel) over the holidays. We thought it was quite good and that the service was quite professional. (Early reviews were very negative on the service.) A good friend reports that dinner is good, too. I think (but am not certain) that they're participating in Restaurant Week, which begins today (3 course dinner for $30.01 - be sure to get the oysters if you can)! (An alternative that is even closer to the Kennedy Center would be Dominique's. We had dinner there several months ago and thought it was OK, but not great.)
There's Kinkead's (seafood) and Bertucci's (chain) at 2000 Pennsylvania Ave, about 3 blocks from Foggy Bottom, away from the metro stop and Kennedy Center (eastbound).
