Friday night dinner near GW campus Washington dc

Im going to the Lisa Lampanelli show friday night at the auditorium on the GW campus. Whats a good place to go out to eat with a lady friend, thats fairly close by or close to a metro stop not too far away? I dont really care what type of food, just looking for something delicious and chow worthy, perhaps a local fav. Im lookin for something nice, but not ridiculous...price should be reasonable. Nothing to "ethnic" though, shes not a big fan of food shes never heard of. yeah pathetic and very anti-chow hound i know but hey what are ya gonna do? oh yea, Tapas are okay however, got her into that. Good drinks/drink specials would be a great plus. looking for any and all suggestions (not just tapas by any means) Gracias amigos

  1. Within a couple of blocks walk, I would consider Notti Bianche, Circle Bistro, and Kinkead's.

    1. Sit outside at Galileo (21st above L)and go for the Osteria (tavern) menu.

        This is kind of odd but how long does the typical meal at Kinkeads last? i have a show to catch and im not sure what time i should get reservations for?

          You can sit in the bar area instead of the main room, and dine for as short or long as you want. NB and CB are very sensitive to pre-theater dining, and will recommend a reservation time to match.

      2. Down on K street, between 20th and 21st, you have Prime rib, which is a little more expensive but has great cuts of meat. Also, a dress code, but it is a place to impress.

          But I would not recommend Prime Rib for pre-theater dining - they are NOT fast.
