Dinner before Twilight Tattoo? (Fort McNair, waterfront metro stop)

We're headed to Fort McNair on Wednesday to see the Twilight Tattoo. Does anyone know where we can grab dinner before hand?
We'll be arriving by Metro (Waterfront stop) and should have about 45 minutes to eat.
Fresh, light meals preferred, but we eat almost all cuisines, so if there's something not to miss (that we can eat quickly), please let me know

  1. With only 45 minutes your choices at SW are very limited. Cantina Marina, just past Arena Stage, is a fun, casual choice, but I don't know if you'd call it "fresh, light." Good for a burger and beer on the water. The newly renovated Safeway at the metro stop serves decent made to order sandwiches, and there are tables/benches at the metro stop. If the weather is not beastly, this may be your best choice.
