Good food from Gaylord Convention Center area

Debakeys May 20, 2012 08:16 PM

Looking for good restaurants. I have a car, but don't want to spend all my time in it. We eat anything. Price / elegance unimportant. Thinking about Hanks and Tasca based on other boards. Too late for minibar. Suggestions? Any restaurants at/near convention center worth the time? Any and all help greatly appreciated.

    A good bet for you is Old Town Alexandria, 10 mins away from the Gaylord - Lots of options there: Restaurant Eve, Vermillion - Below is one topic but there are many others when you search "old Town"

    Also, there is a water Taxi that goes between the Gaylord and Old town, it's a fun way to go and not worry about parking, etc.

      Pretty much everything at National Harbor is geared towards the expense account demographic, so they don't really care they're blowing $22 on a plate of fried rice. Crossing the bridge into Old Town is your best bet: Eve, Brabo, Vermillion.
