Lunch around 13th & F NW - suggestions?

Any thoughts on what's good to try? I'm meeting a business associate/friend for lunch, so I'd like something above Pot Belly, Corner Bakery, but not something that will break the bank. I was thinking Brasserie Beck; I know, it's pricey.

Thanks much.

  1. Brasserie Beck is a great idea! It probably wouldn't be as pricey for lunch as it would be for dinner (and even then I think its solidly in the moderate price-range.)

    Old Ebbitt Grill isn't to far off from there.

    You are also walking distance to some of the restaurants in Penn Quarter/Gallery Place/Chinatown. Perhaps tapas at Jaleo or Zaytinya. You can try yummy nuevo latino cuisine at Cafe Atlantico. Or mini-burgers or pizza at Matchbox. All are perfectly affordable for lunch.

      I also forgot about Bistro D'Oc which is pretty close to your location. Delicious french bistro cuisine. I'm pretty sure they are open for lunch but you might want to call and double check.

        You are also not to far away from Bistro D'Oc, a wonderful french bistro. I'm not 100% sure they are open for lunch so you might want to call and ask but the menu is delicious and quite affordable. Might be a good fit for you.

        1. Metro Center!

          Tosca (southside of F btw 11 and 12) (I think they're open for lunch) - Italian
          Oceanaire (northside of F between and 12 and 13) - Seafood
          Butterfield 9 (NW corner of 14th and G) - New American?
          Ceiba (NE corner of 14th and G) - Pan-Latin

          Also close by, but I haven't been to Finemondo (italian) and M&S Grill (chain food) (F street btwn 13 and 14)

          Penn Quarter/Gallery Place is close by - although in this heat....

          1. Ollie's!

            a dumpy good burger. (forget the fries or the Ollie - concentrate the calories and cholesterol on the Bacon Cheese)
