sunday, near the Walters
I am going to the Walters on Sunday afternoon, and would love to get lunch before or late lunch/early dinner afterwards, somewhere in the neighborhood.
Since you're going on a Sunday, some restaurants in the area will be closed. Here's a quick list of some places:
Egyptian Pizza (always changes names so I'd check the latest - maybe Cafe Isis?)
Mt. Vernon Stable
Helmand (dinner only)
It depends on what you are in the mood for...
Check on Cafe Mocha's hours (they are weird). But their sandwiches are top notch for lunch. IXIA and Sotto Sopra are on the higher end of the price spectrum but are walkable. Mick O'Sheas has some great bar style food, and I think on Sundays they have an awesome sheppard's pie special and is also walkable.
Cazbar just a couple of blocks south on Charles for Turkish food. There is a Nepali restaurant next door but I haven't tried it- others on the board have liked it. Do check hours on a Sunday for places in that neighborhood.
Trinacria Café, an offshoot of the famed Trinacria Foods - Italian Deli and Gourmet Grocery, which has been in business since 1908, opened earlier this year and I couldn't find any place else on CH DC/MD to post this, so I thought I'd tag it on here.
It's no destination fine dining restaurant, but if at the Walters, it's a fine Italian lunch joint. My take is at http://johntalbottsparis.typepad.com/...
