Dear PoP – good meeting spaces?

“Dear PoP,

My volunteer group has been struggling to find a good meeting space for our monthly meetings. Our group promotes volunteering by creating a fun and social atmosphere, but our meetings may have to move to a library in order to accommodate the group…ugh! We’re trying to find a place that’s quiet enough that we can hold a meeting, with food (and preferably beverages!) either available to order, or somewhere that allows us to bring food into, that can accommodate 15 or so people, that is metro accessible and somewhat centrally located between DC/VA/MD (we’ve been trying to stick to gallery place/metro center/penn quarter area). And again, we’re a non-profit volunteer group with limited funds so we try to keep it fairly cheap. Anyone have any suggestions? We’ve tried places like Teaism (surprisingly loud on a week night), Cosi (crappy food/service), Laughing Man Tavern (unsurprisingly loud).”

Hmm, I was gonna recommend one of the new libraries! But obviously no food or drink could be a downer.

How about Union Station? Or the pavilion at the National Portrait Gallery? Where would you guys suggest?
