D.C. Eats, seeking suggestions!

Hi All,

In a few weeks I will be visiting Washington, D.C., with my boyfriend. We will be staying with friends in the Woodley Park area by the Zoo. I don't know much about D.C., I've been a few times but these were either with parents, who marched me around, or school groups, so I was too busy looking at museums to consider food. I will be in the city over a long weekend.

So tell me what to eat! One of my friends is a vegetarian but otherwise no one is picky eating-wise. We'll also need a celebratory but not incredibly expensive place where we can celebrate two birthdays (my host's and my own). We're looking to keep meals moderate to affordable as none of us is a high roller. Authentic, off the beaten track is good.

Anyways, looking forward to hearing y'all's suggestions.
