Restaurant rec for teens?

My 17 yr old son wants to take his girlfriend to see Les Miserables then to dinner. Not sure of the timing - maybe dinner then show or matinee then dinner. This will be his first real dinner and a show. Any suggestions for a restaurant that would be kind to a couple of sweet kids. Not outrageously expensive, but he does want to do it right.

  1. Where is the theater and what do they like to eat?

    1. re: Hobbert

      National - 12th & Penn. They are pretty adventuresome so just about any cuisine is fine. Too young to drink so the wine list is not an issue.

    2. I would do Tosca.

      If that's too pricey, then perhaps Bistro D'Oc.

      1. I would consider the Hamilton - not expensive and lots of options including at least one thing every kid would like. Not difficult to score a reservation.

        If he wants something more upscale, Bibiana has an excellent pre-theater dinner menu.

        1. Matchbox, Rosa Mexicana, Jaleo, DC Chophouse

          1. He downloaded the app urbanspoon to his phone, did some research and decided on the Caucus Room by himself. They said it was delicious! Not where I would have picked, but they had a great time. They were so hungry after ice skating (couldn't get theater tickets) that I think anything would have sufficed. Thanks fr your suggestions though, I will try them myself...
