Dinner near Kennedy Center?

Last time I looked, there weren't many options. Any recommendations for a casual dinner before a show?

    Roti, Sweetgreen, District Tap & Shake, and District Commons are all right at the Foggy Bottom metro, where you can catch the shuttle to the Kennedy Center.

      clarification: it's Burger, Tap and Shake and it's right next door to District Commons.

      For a casual meal I like District Commons. Even more casual (counter service) you can check out Roti or Sweetgreen. All are across from Foggy Bottom and then you can catch the shuttle to the Kennedy Center or walk.

      Over in the West End you can check out the bar/lounge at Rasika West End or the bar at Ris.

        I like Dish + Drink (more casual than, say, Ris, less than Sweetgreen)
