Where to eat in Washington DC?

Heading to DC for a couple of days this weekend/early next week with my husband. Will be staying near Union Station and probably doing mostly touristy things (neither of us has been since we were kids). For sure are checking out the "What's Cooking Uncle Sam" exhibit at the Archives and having dinner at "America Eats Tavern" after.

Would love some suggestions on good places to eat--a few dinner recs would be nice, but some good lunch and/or breakfast places as well. Really any price range is ok, although we'll probably steer clear of any place super expensive (live in NYC so that's relative, I suppose). Won't have a car with us, so need to be able to get there via public transportation.
