Headed to DC this weekend with hubby for his first visit in a long time. This means we will be taking in the sights on and around the mall. Staying on F St. NW. Looking for suggestions (that are not tourist traps) for quick lunches while touring and nice dinners in the evening. Considering Old Town Alexandria & Georgetown for dinner.
Grab a sandwich (to go) at Cowgirl Creamery cheese store, 919 F St NW. Mmmmmm.
Cowgirl Creamery East
919 F St NW, Washington, DC 20004
Cowgirl Creamery Sandwiches are wonderful. Also, a good spot for lunch near the National Gallery is Teasim. Don't miss their salty oat cookies - both the regular and the chocolate versions are phenomenal.
Teaism Penn Quarter
400 8th St NW, Washington, DC 20004
If you're on F St., then Penn Quarter has plenty of great options ... in general, a better dining scene than Georgetown, especially if you're trying to avoid the touristy.
I'll third the Cowgirl Creamery sandwiches. One of my favorite quick lunches downtown.
In Old Town for a nice dinner you could check out Vermillion, The Majestic or Restaurant Eve.
Sorry I am not sure where to eat in Georgetown, I like Farenheit in the Ritz, the lounge at Citronelle and Citronelle of course.
