Hound choices near Sixth & I Synagogue???

I'll be in D.C. for only one night, tomorrow (Saturday), for a performance at the Sixth & I Synagogue. The only thing I know about the neighborhood is that it's at the corner of, well, Sixth & I.

Are there any unique and preferably quick Chowhound spots within a short drive of that location? Recommendations are appreciated -- especially ones that are posted before noon tomorrow, when we load up and move out.

  1. It's right in DC's "Chinatown." And near the Nat'l Portrait Gallery. Perhaps another CH'r can get more specific about restaruaants, but Chinatown has quite a few.

    (What is the performance?)

    1. You'll be less than a block from Full Kee (H between 5th and 6th, which is where you should eat if you like Cantonese food. Order the shrimp dumpling soup, some greens (leed flowers or snow pea leaves or baby bok choy), and the soft-shell crabs or a casserole of your liking. That's enough for 2-3 people.

      1. You can crab some oysters and a yummy cesar salad at the Legals Seafood across from the MCI Center. Short walk to Sixth and I. Also around that area is a pretty good Burmase restaurant...I think its one of the only ones in the District.

        Also depending on what time you are going to the show and how much time you have on your hands there is Matchbox, Zola, and Zaytinya.

        1. xny: It's called Good For the Jews -- a hilarious night of unorthodox music and comedy. Very New York, and you can hear a few songs at, if you're interested.

          Marty: That sounds like the perfect spot for us, thanks for the pointer! I just hope there' some matzoh in those shrimp dumplings, cough cough.
