  1. What part of town will you be in for breakfast or lunch?

    For dinner on Tuesday, I would suggest going to Barrack's Row (8th St. SE in Cap. Hill) before the game. Cava Mezze (greek tapas) is my favorite restaurant on that street, but there's also Ted's Bulletin, Belga Cafe, Matchbox, etc. It's about a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute cab ride to the stadium.

    1. Before the game I would hit up Ba Bay for modern twist Vietnamese (in a good way).
      Breakfast options are limited in DC- maybe Blue Duck, Poste, Bistro Bis or Firefly or Founding Farmers depending on where you are.
      Solid lunch: Fiola or Proof perhaps?

      Bistro Bis
      15 E Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001

      Founding Farmers
      1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20006

      1. For a pre-game snack, right near the stadium.
