I'm in Los Angeles, trying to help plan a 50th anniversary celebration in the Arlington area. The party will be a luncheon on a Saturday in July, with approximately 40 guests (including some children). I am looking for a restaurant that has a private room and solid food...it doesn't have to be the best food in the world, but I'm hoping for a step up from banquet food.
To put things in perspective, the top contender right now is the Army Navy Country Club. The guests of honor are members, so there is a push to have the event there. I think it will be very expensive for yucky banquet food. Please help me...if I have no better suggestions, then I will be destined to eat rubber chicken and wilted salad! Something near Crystal City, Shirlington, etc., would be ideal.
