Lunch with a 17-year old in DC

floraatwell May 18, 2009 03:03 PM

I'm taking my 17 year old niece to DC for a day of museum-going. Where should we go for lunch? She is a suburban kid who has been to DC many times, but usually lunches at the Smithsonian. I'd like to take her somewhere with a hip and modern feel with more locals than tourists. Budget is not an issue.

        Central is hip, modern and delicious---plus it's near the museum's so you won't have to travel too far. Other options might be Zaytinya, Jaleo, or Cafe Atlantico.

          Or a quick metro transfer to Gallery Place will offer many good options.
          Sushi-Go-Rounds, Zengo Asian Fusion, Matchbox... the options are endless.

          Central is great. There are many adventurous items on the menu, but also just burgers as well.
