Good eats around DAR

Chowhounders, last minute advice please. Going to a show @ DAR tonight (yeah Ryan Adams!) and just realised that I am a bit out of sorts with what's w/in walking distance for eats. Any suggestions? We'll prob get down there around 6:30/7pmish and would need to be out in a little over an hour or so. Cheap eats? Tapas? Ethnic? We're not picky, but are restricted by budget (def less than $30pp)
Hey aussiewonder, we're also heading down to DC from Baltimore for the show. I searched the board - after having a disasterous pre-show Warner Theater meal a few weeks ago, I decided to get some input this time!
It seems that there aren't a lot of places close-by. We were thinking of some seafood at the bar at Kinkead's, or maybe some oysters at the Old Ebbitt Grill...but if anyone else has any additional recommendations I'd love to hear them too. I'd also like to keep things reasonable (those tickets were enough $ :)
Thanks Caphil07. Yes! Getting a drink or two is def a priority bc i know it's going to be more costly inside. Maybe Tonic will be good another time round...
Up a couple blocks in Farragut square there is Bombay Club, Equinox and The Oval Room none of which are cheap eats, but since there are two people on this thread I thought I would write to both.
Most cheaper places in this area are only open for lunch.
A cheaper option at 17th and I is Cafe Asia. I like Old Ebbitt for oysters and maybe a burger, but it isn't awesome cuisine. But not bad.
If you are there around happy hour time tapas and drink are half price at Taberna del Aberdero it is at H and 18th I think. It is not real close, but not too bad. I am used to walking a good bit so you might want to look at it and see.
Kinkeads is a good choice, too.
There is a Teaism near there, which would be quick and pretty cheap, but not the funnest atmosphere (not terrible though) -- it's Asian-y. I wonder if Lindy's, for burgers, would be close enough (it's near Kinkead's)? The Corcoran has a restaurant, but I don't think it's very good. Also, maybe Cafe Soleil (I've never been there)?
