Restaurant near GWU?

Vegetarian-friendly is a must, but need not be exclusively vegetarian. We love ethnic food of all kinds as well. We're headed to GWU today and are hoping for a great dinner tonight!! Non-tourist-trappy is a must.

  1. Indian would be a good bet. Minverva, Bombay Bistro, Bollywood Bistro are all within a 10 minute drive of GMU in Fairfax.

    98 W Montgomery Ave, Rockville, MD 20850

    1. re: dpan

      Friends like Java Green for lunch, but I haven't been and it doesn't look like a dinner place.

      For dinner, maybe Blue Duck. They have some veg options and aren't too far. I think dpan might have had his iPad upside down .. ;)

    2. RIS is nearby. I'm sure they would be willing to work with you on vegetarian choices.

      Dpan: I think you misread GWU as GMU.

        1. Founding Farmers might fit the bill:

          Note: I've never eaten there, but I've heard good things from friends. It's on my list of places to try next time I'm in DC.

          1. this is great so far--thank you!!

            Also, we will be looking for somewhere to have breakfast Sunday morning, and dinner Saturday night.
