Jeff, Jeff, Jeff, I sure wish I could give you a good answer, but I am afraid it has been too long since I lived there to answer you. You're only a few short blocks from the Mayflower Hotel. You could go tell Tino I said hello and pay a months wages for dinner :rolleyes: You're only a couple of blocks away from Chinatown as well. So lot's of places there. You could go up to Georgetown for some very nice places, many of which are pretty reasonable.
I wish I could be of more help, but while you're there think about this, that when I was growing up, this area was my stomping grounds. I lived there all my life up until 12 years ago or so. From when I was a little one going to the museums to adulthood going to the clubs. What a wonderful freaking place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Find Sutton Place Gourmet, now owned by Balduccis for awesome sandwiches too!!! http://suttongourmet.com
Enjoy, I do so wish I was there!
