Lunch Nov 3rd DC
I am driving into the city tomorrow. I want a place for lunch. Just me. I am open to anything. Dont want to spend too much. A place with a decent beer would be fun. Maybe $30max. less is better.
Will be near constitution square. Have a car. something relaxing, good atmosphere. I would like to sit down. Quick bites are cool too. Friendly waitstaff. Thanks!
Go to Brasserie Beck. A true Belgian bra with many fine beers to choose from. Go for the shallot and onion soup ($11) and a half-portion of their Belgian-style carbonara ($11).
I don't know where 'constitution square' is.......
Great cheap eats include Oohhs and Aahhs for soul food (a dive), the roast pork sandwich at Taylor Gourmet, and a quarter dark spicy chicken at Nando's Peri-Peri. All GREAT eating.

Looks like his location is North of Union Station.
Not really for food, but ambiance, cheap eats and a classic DC joint you could hit the Tune Inn on the other side of the Capitol.
All of Steve's recs are seconded here.
The only other I might through in for your specific request is Johny's Half Shell. Get the wood fired wings and a drink. Caveat: It has been awhile since I've been.

I read this and thought of Brasserie Beck, also. Sit at the bar (not that I've got anything against a true Belgian bra, either, Steve).
Birch and Barley if they serve lunch
