DC & Chevy Chase recs for Feb visit with teens?

Not sure if you automatically receive my reply if it's to another poster, but no we won't have a car. Also, we are from Dayton Ohio. With a few notable exceptions (Anne Kearney has moved back here from New Orleans if anyone's familiar with her former restaurant Peristyle) I don't think we need to be too worried that there may be better places here! : )

We will not have a car, but our hotel conveniently has a red line metro stop in the lower level. We plan to travel by metro most of the time. That being said we will probably be walking in the area right around the hotel for some evening meals. Lunches will be downtown while we are sightseeing, as well as 1 or 2 evening meals, depending on how well the kids are hanging in there.
thanks so much for everyone's help!! Great ideas! Can't wait to get there.

Have used CH many times as a reference, but never posted til now, so bear with me! My husband and I are heading to DC next weekend for 4 days with three teens- boy 13, and twin 15 yr old girls. Kids' first time visit and my first in decades. Looking for interesting places near the major sites for lunch & dinner; also dinner spots near our hotel in Chevy Chase (Embassy Suites). Would like a list with some variety- i.e. "quintessential DC" spots, awesome "hole in the walls", yummy pizza/burger etc, Asian, modern Italian/Mediterranean, anything amazing that isn't stuffy.....can't wait to see the posts!!! Thanks so much. p.s. just say no to chicken fingers!!!!
