Late night dining in DC

I'm not typically a night person, so I come to the experts for help :)

My boyfriend is coming into town Saturday night and we'd like to go somewhere for dinner. By the time he arrives and we get to town it will probably be around 10:30-11. We'd like something a little bit nicer, but nowhere we really have to get dressed up. Somewhere we can have decent service and good food/drinks, and atmosphere would be nice. In other words, Ben's Chili Bowl and Amsterdam Falafel are out. I heard that Proof does a late night bar menu, so something along those lines might be nice, though maybe something just a tad more casual would be perfect.

The only restrictions include no Indian or Ethiopian. And the closer to the Hill, the better.
