Will be staying at the Crowne Plaza and attending meetings at Exelon next week and will have several opportunities for dinners and breakfast. Dinners will likely be with colleagues -- looking for good food, but casual setting hopefully within walking distance of the hotel or Exelon office. Breakfast will be just me and looking for good coffee/tea place and/or a good diner type place that is within walking distance of hotel or Exelon office. Not overly concerned with $$.

Appreciate your recommendations.

Thanks,

BL -- DC Hound

    Pretty much the entire downtown is available to you for dinner, much is walkable and a short cab ride makes everything else accessible. A couple casual, walkable restaurants that would be good for dinner are Village Whiskey and The Dandelion, though the former is small so I wouldn't go with anymore than four people, and there may be a wait during peak hours. But you have a lot of dinner options so browse around the board and other web sites.

    For breakfast, if you can go a few blocks out of the way, Parc on Rittenhouse Square opens early and is a nice place for breakfast, especially if you sit in the windows. La Colombe on 19th is also a nice place to get coffee and a pastry. Farther out of the way but with great pour over coffee and espresso drinks is Elixir. On the way, Nook on 20th St does a decent job with coffee and has really good muffins and other baked goods. BTW most of the street carts make good breakfast sandwiches so that's another option if you're in a hurry.
