Lunch along K Street?

stgrove Feb 28, 2011 10:28 AM

Hello, Chowhounds! I'm meeting a friend for lunch next week and am looking for suggestions for a sit-down lunch place along K Street or a block or two north or south someplace between Washington Circle and Connecticut/Farragut North.

We've done Sichuan Pavillion and that basement Indian buffet next to Naan and Beyond and are looking for new options. Thai would be nice. Or even a good sandwich place with space to sit and eat. Any suggestions?

        Don't they have tables set up outside when it's nice?

          They have two outdoor tables in good weather. All the more reason to get there early.

      Breadline, perhaps Teaism might work if it is nice they have outside seats.

        Hm, thanks much for the suggestions! I'm a fan of Greek Deli, but am ready to try someplace else. Breadline looks great--will we be able to get a table around 1 or is it likely to be too busy?

          I've always been able to get a seat even when it's really busy. There's a lot of turnover, I think. I prefer getting all sandwiches served on their baguette - it is very very good.

          I also really like Pret a Manger, which has smaller servings but very interesting combinations and fresh sandwiches and salads.

        Lots of options in this area....unfortunately Thai isn't really one of them. For sandwiches, I like Brown Bag at 818 18th Street (right past the Farragut West metro).

        Also a few blocks away (right next to Breadline) is Roti which I'm in love with. The salmon kabob is delicious.

        And Nooshi is pretty good for pan-Asian.

        It gets crowded sometimes but I also like Rice Bar at 1020 19th Street.

          If you go to Breadline, get the Italian Sausage Sandwch (served every day). Unless it's Friday in which case you should order the bbq on a ciabatta. Word.

            I like Nooshi and Asia Bistro, but don't forget Malaysia Kopitiem on M (looks like a dump)

              If you're willing to go up to M Street, check out Maoz for felafel. All-you-can-eat toppings bar, very fresh, comfortable seating. I really like this place.
