Quick Dinner with Noxious Relative

So, I've got this "friend" who is having dinner with a particularly noxious relative. He'd like to have a good meal, somewhere in downtown DC or maybe a close-in suburb, but would really like it to be more of an in-and-out. Meal speed is key here -- the quicker the better.

I'm thinking restaurants that don't serve dessert are a good bet, but also think somewhere like Ray's would be good too... any thoughts?

Thanks.

Friend: "You have GOT to try this place!"

Noxious Relative: "What is it?"

F: "It's called Mitsitam, in the National Museum of the American Indian - there's nothing like it anywhere!"

NR: "Great!"

F: "Thing is though ... the museum closes at 5:30, so we'll need to get there around 5. But it's soooo worth it!"

There you go: thirty minutes of pain; forced exit; home by 6 PM.

Incidentally, I went to Mitsitam a couple weeks ago and remain amazed at the quality of food they're serving. However, the chicken nuggets, fries, and even the buffalo burger are lame - it pays to bypass that station altogether (the first one on the right when you walk in), and venture into more unusual ingredients and preparations - this time around, I had a plate of littleneck clams and a couple small root-vegetable salads, and I'd order both again. You can order fish, game, salads, soups, etc., with a fair amount of confidence, and also see exactly what they look like before you order.
