  1. First, I'm not asking for myself, but rather a good friend of mine. He's looking for: " restaurants in Georgetown that might be good for a 20-22 person wedding party, either semi- or full-private room. We've been looking at all the places on Opentable, but haven't found anything really suited - a view would be preferable. Bunch of restraunts have gotten back to us, but nothing really hitting the right notes yet. What venue springs to mind with Georgetown, decent view, and semi-private room? " When he was asked which of those three criteria - private/semi-private room, view, and Georgetown - he would be the most comfortable with sacrificing, he chose the private/semi-private room. He *wanted* Sequoia, but his wedding's at 2pm and Sequoia won't seat them until 6pm. He said he's looked into Fiola but balked a bit at the pricing. Any assistance or steers would be much appreciated. The wedding is happening on March 29th. EDIT: To add to the criteria: "windows are a priority, I've been told"
  2. Didn't want to head down to the Village, so stuck with Da Tommaso. Very happy with it...baked clams, veal parm, linguini with white clam sauce...all exactly what I was looking for. Short walk to the theater, so that worked out well too. I'll have to try Piccolo Angolo when I have a bit more time in the city to compare.
  3. Hi, all, I'd greatly appreciate your help with this -- I've been asked to look into a venue for a private business for 10 to 12 people in DC. In the past, we've used a private room at the Tabard Inn, which fit all our needs, but we're disinclined to return for obvious reasons. Here are the criteria my boss has set: Spacious room: we're planning a three-hour lunch/discussion, so we'd like a room that's not mostly filled by the table. We'd like for people to be able to walk around the room as needed. Enclosed room: not merely separated from the main dining room by a curtain Windowed room (preferably) No pre-selection of entrees: we'd like to be able to order off a menu at the time of the lunch (though a constrained/limited lunch is fine) Cost: we're priced out of most hotels. We're willing to pay $250 or $500 for a room fee, but not $1,500. I think at Tabard we paid $250 for the room. Food: we're happy to order a three-course meal, but we don't need passed hors d'oeuvres or anything like that. Location: in/near downtown DC. Equipment: we don't need screens or projectors, but a conference phone would be nice. I have no idea if such a place exists, but I'd appreciate any leads you fine folks can give. Don, any thoughts? Thank you! Simon
  4. My friend recently purchased four bottles of Pappy Van Winkle. Instead of us just sitting around the house and drinking it (and eating cheez-its), we would like the ability to bring our bottles to a restaurant and eat some great food while drinking our bourbon. I have reached out to some restaurants and got a quick "no" because of "laws" or something silly like that. So, I was hoping that someone on this board would see my post, take pity on us, and invite us to your fine establishment. There are 8 of us (4 couples). The husbands will be drinking the bourbon, our wives will drink copious amounts of wine (we won't bring that). We are open to any type of food, no allergies, no dislikes. We are flexible on dates and times, but likely want to stick to a Friday or Saturday night. We don't need a private table or room, but aren't opposed to it if you think it would be better than having us drinking out in the open. Please PM me if you can help us out. Thanks Tony
  5. As the situation would have it, I stayed in the Gwynn Park Days Inn last week (near Security Mall). First 7 PM, then 8 PM, then 9 PM, fast approached, then passed. I was getting hungry, and my options were becoming limited. Paradise Indian Restaurant is *the* restaurant, and I mean, the *only* restaurant at the Days Inn. In DC-based terms, it's not unlike Sangam was before it closed - an odd, virtually unknown Indian banquet hell dominating the center of a fleabag motel, with no apparent reason for being there, other than possible Indian ownership. Rather than take a 9:30 PM chance on something else, I decided to make the best of a potentially bad situation. I walked into the restaurant, studied the environs and menu carefully, and decided it had a strong Pakistani influence. They advertised that their goat and lamb were Halal (a very good sign), and so I went simple, Halal, and rolled the dice on the Lamb Curry ($12.95) which came with basmati rice. I ordered a side of Butter Naan ($1.95) and Raita (which they forgot to include, and fortunately forgot to charge me for). I asked for a plate, fork, and napkin, took my meal back to my room, and enjoyed it with a 2004 Mugneret-Gibourg Echezeaux (did I just say that?) Yes, yes I did. And wow, what a combination. Think "Ravi Kabob" when you think of Paradise's "Lamb Curry." It was boneless chunks of halal lamb, in a brownish, granular gravy, without much of anything else going on, and it was delicious. Spicy, but not too spicy, with the essence of lamb flavor in every single chunk. The rice and the naan were neutral vehicles to sop up the curry which was extremely Pakistani in spirit. For a 9:30 PM carryout dish, in a crummy interstate motel, and a complete unknown Indo-Pak restaurant, I'm willing to bet I had one of the best dishes served in Gwynn Park on this evening. Call it blind luck, skill in evaluation and ordering, or a gift from God, but just call it ... victory. Not awesome, not italic, and this restaurant is known more for its banquets and buffet lunches; but, gosh this meal was good, and it could have been really, really bad. Whoever butchers and wholesales this lamb is doing a very, very good job. A disaster averted!
