I will be in DC August 14th - 18th for a conference, and will be staying at the Marriott at Metro Center (775 12th St. NW).
I am not big on "American" or chain restaurants (I have those at home), but really enjoy ethnic food (ethiopian, indian, vietnamese, thai...). Are there any you could recommend in that area?
Although I would also love to have dinner recommendations, I am particularly interested in places to eat lunch (we are given 1 1/2 hours for lunch, so there isn't time to travel out of the area).
Thanks so much for looking at this!
