A friend recently asked me to help plan a dinner as a surprise for her significant other’s birthday in a few months. They live outside the beltway, as do most of their friends who will be joining us, but they would like to do a casual dinner in DC, and then head out to a few local bars afterwards.
As a resident of the District who has family visit semi-frequently, I know it can be very stressful to find a place for a large group to dine. I’ve had hosts/hostesses literally laugh in my face when I ask if they could seat 10 folks at my regular neighborhood hangouts.
Are there any restaurants that you would recommend that could seat a large group (15-20 in this particular case) on a Saturday night?”
