      1. You don't specify where or when, so I'll throw Standard into the mix if it's over a weekend. REALLY casual.

          I second The Standard, if outdoor seating is important. I wrote about it here:

          It's open for lunch weekends only.

            Sorry coming in on Wednesday. Nothing expensive just casual

        2. It would be helpful to know your price range, when you are coming in to town and where you will be. But a few of my favorite places with outdoor seating that are open for lunch are Poste, Tabard Inn, Cafe St. Ex, and Hank's Oyster Bar.

          Tabard Inn
          1739 N St NW, Washington, DC 20036

          Hank's Oyster Bar
          1026 King St Ste 1, Alexandria, VA 22314

            I second Hank's, but would also add CF Folks (order from the specials only).

              Hank's isn't open for lunch during the week. Lots of places aren't; make sure you check the hours of wherever you decide to go.

                That stinks because hanks looks so good. Was exactly what I was looking for

          2. thank you for all the suggestions
