Decent Lunch near Newseum?
Meeting my parents in DC for the weekend and visiting the Newseum on Friday morning.
Where can we have lunch that is reasonably priced and not just a sandwich/salad chain?
They are in their 70's and well traveled and in good health.
We're doing Jaleo for dinner Thursday and Acadiana with a large group on Friday.
We're staying in Penn Quarter so heading back in that direction is fine.
Would you consider Wolfgang Puck's The Source? Maybe too fancy? It is on the same block as the Newseum. With the three course prix fixe lunch, Newseum entrance is $10.
I adore the suggested Central...but it is a bit of a hike from the Newseum. A little closer might be Fiola.
Teaism is counter service place, so might be more casual than desired? Their bento boxes are delish, as is the Ochazuke with Salmon (green tea soup)...and the salty oatmeal cookies.
Central is wonderful - check out their menu. Only you can judge whether or not it's "reasonably priced". Also, Central for lunch and Acadiana for dinner might be a bit much in one day. The last time I checked, Central was only open for lunch during the week - not weekends.
