Dining near the Key Bridge

Today I don't have to be in the office, but I have some paper work (editing) to do. I would like to find a quiet but tasty place, preferably in Georgetown (i.e., a nice walking distance from Arlington), where I can sit and have lunch and then linger a while to work. I was hoping that it would be sunny and warm so that I could sit outside, but that's obviously not the case. Any ideas?

BP so you can have a couple of good beer to ease the editing.

I'm on Lee Highway, about a 10-min walk from Clarendon...

MDT, I like your BP idea! What's the basement like?

That's where my girlfriend lives. We do a lot of walking through Arlington and around the area to get chow. We tend to head towards courthouse a lot, but for Georgetown you might consider the Tombs for lunch. I've always had really good lunch fare there.

Like this, only with people in it. It would be a really good place to sit and get work done, provided you're not doing it around happy hour time.

The basement has its own hours, though you could get beer upstairs before then. I just called and the basement beer bar opens at 5 PM. That's what I thought the sign said, but I couldn't remember.

Playing edit catchup here... The general hours for PP are Mon-Thurs: 11:30 am to 11:00 pm

Fri-Sat: 11:30 am to midnight

Sun: noon to 10:00 pm

It turned out that outdoors would have been fine, but I did descend into The Tombs. The food was fine -- I had tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich -- and the Tombs beer was nice, especially in a chilled mug. There were too many LOUD people sat in my room, which was distracting, so I wouldn't go there for working again, especially on a nice spring day, but I would definitely give it a shot for affordable, tasty bar food in Georgetown (a miracle in itself).

glad you enjoyed it. can't control the other folks in a bar during the daytime, but the food is good for what it is and i've always liked it as a random georgetown lunch spot.
