      Great ideas! Here's an alternative schedule.

      Breakfast at Teaism in Penn Quarter (tea smoked salmon, yum).
      Visit one or two of the museums on the north side of the mall and then...
      Lunch at Rasika.
      Visit the portrait Gallery. Get on the Green line to U Street.
      Happy Hour $5 wine at Vinoteca.
      Walk west on U to 14th, and enjoy some small plates at Bar Pilar OR visit one of the U street area Ethiopian restaurants
      Walk back to the U Street Metro and ride to Gallery Place.
      Have a late night (after 9:30) half priced appetizer and drink special at Cieba.
      Now you won't need to eat again for several days!

        I love the Eastern Market and Old Ebbitt recs, and the other poster's Ethiopian idea for dinner (make it Etete or Dukem). But maybe I'd do the lickety-split lunch at Restaurant Eve. For drinks, perhaps the bar at the Mayflower (old school) or PS 7's (new school).
