Any recommendations?

I'd like to keep it below $75 for two if possible.

    Bistro D'Oc is near by and a wonderful, little french bistro.

    My #1 choice would be Central. But your meal would most likely come to more than $75 total. But if you just order appetizers (which many people do and they are delicious) you can probably get out of there for cheaper.

      Ceiba is very near, isn't it, on 14th? Could you go there for this price range? (I haven't been there in ages.)

      Lunch or dinner? Also, how far are you willing to walk?

      If you're willing to walk 10-15 minutes to Penn Quarter, you could go to Jaleo, Oyamel, or Zatinya and easily stay within your budget.

        Thanks all. Although I've lived here for six years, I'm a total retard when it comes to knowing where certain venues are in relation to others...I just get out of the Metro and follow the map in DC.

          We ended up going to Central.

          Always reliable. $96 instead of $75 out the door but I kinda knew that ahead of time and we had cocktails.

          Thanks again Hounds.
