a good place for a first date between baltimore and dc?
I'm meeting this guy for the first time on a lunch / dinner tomorrow. I live in Montgomery Village and he lives in Baltimore. Any recommendations for a good half way meeting point and a restaurant with reasonable prices and is also accessible by bus or train? Not crowded, simple and fun place at the same time, good for a lunch or dinner date, nice place to hangout and for a good conversation.
Like the OP, don't know about the transport issues, but can highly recommend Victoria Gastro Pub in Columbia. Great beer selcetion, served by knowledgeable staff, interesting apps, and entrees, including mussels, duck fat fries, poutine, sandwichs, beef and fish.www.victoriagastropub.com

Who is travelling by train or bus? Is it commuter or std public transit? Is it possible for someone to rent a Zip Car by a station for a couple of hours (would make it easier)? Columbia area is a good midpoint, but will need transport.
If you need to be near transit, forget Columbia. Something near the Silver Spring metro station may be your best bet.
