Shaw-Howard U Metro stop - casual sit-down,

Glendale is hungry Feb 20, 2012 08:23 AM

Hello DC hounds!

I'm going to be down in DC on a weeknight and taking some friends to dinner.

I'm looking for a casual quiet sit-down place within walking distance of the Shaw-Howard U Metro stop.

My friends aren't too adventurous so I don't think they would be up for Ethiopian or other African, which seems to be readily available in this area.

Are there any restaurants in this area that would fit my description? I saw info about Thai X-ing, which sounds good but seems awfully expensive from the menu on their web site.

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

Ciao,

Glendale is hungry...

      I second the recommendation for Beau Thai - it's close to the metro, quiet, and has good food. Rustik or Boundary Stone (both at 1st and Rhode Island) would be good options - Boundary Stone has better food/drink but is definitely louder and more crowded than Rustik.

        Thai X-ing is all fixed price now. It's amazing, but you need to be up for a lot of food. There's another Thai restaurant, Beau Thai, which is lovely and delicious. You'd just head east on R a few blocks to get there. For very casual (and if you don't need cocktails) there's Red Toque (http://redtoquecafe.com/).

        If you are willing to walk six blocks or so, I can't recommend Boundary Stone enough. It's in Bloomingdale, at Rhode Island and 2nd.
