Need styley place not too pricey, definitely working lunch. Ideas? Was thinking tackle box, but too much of a free for all.

    Then how about it's sister restaurant next door, Hook? That should work.

        I've never been there but walk by it all the time. I've always wondered about Paolo's.

      Dean and Deluca or Pizzeria Paradiso.

        Dean and Deluca wouldn't work for working lunch, especially if the poster has dining companions. There isn't anywhere to sit except outside and that is really dependent on a) getting a table and b) the weather.

          I too think Le Pain Quotidien is a good venue for a working lunch. i've been there with clients for breakfast and lunch meetings. For lunch, I recommend going a bit later (say 1:15-1:30pm-ish. Between 12-1/1:30 pm, it can be noisy.

          And if you want a really stylish place, my #1 rec in Georgetown is the Lounge at Bourbon Steak. It's extremely classy, and the (mid-priced) food is excellent.

          Leopold's Kafe. Very stylish, mid-priced, and quiet enough to get some work done.

              I really like Tackle Box, Pizzeria Paradiso and Paolos- all are great choices! Tackle Box, in my opinion is the most casual of the 3. Actually, Peacock Cafe might be nice too! Let us know what you decide!

                What about Martins Tavern? I think that is another solid option.

                Leopold's Kafe is a good choice as well.
