pre-marathon dinner in DC

  • b

Hi - I am coming to DC this weekend to run the DC Marathon and I need a place for my pre-race dinner. I am loking for an Italian restaurant, not super fancy, but not a chain type either, with good food, a nice atmosphere and moderate prices. I am staying at the Metro Center Marriot and wouldn't mind a place close by but am willing to go anywhere if necessary. Thanks

  1. Two good places near metro center are Luigino (around 11th and New York Ave) and Tuscana West (around 13th and I). Both are quite yummy. Good luck running the marathon!
