Hello, I am planning a dinner in honour of someone else's success at something, and am looking at restaurants in the Dupont/AM/Woodley Park area. I read about the Afghan Grill on the Internet and was wondering if it was still any good.
The number of people who might show up is still undecided, but I'm looking at 15 probably. Is it too small? Can it take that size of reservation?
I'm looking for something affordable that isn't spicy Indian or East Asian cuisine, if anyone has any other good suggestions, and I'd like to see if I can avoid mezza/tapas type places because managing the dietary restrictions and the food sharing can get stressful with that many people. The food should try to be under $25 a place. The wine is not such a big deal, I don't drink and I believe neither does the guest of honour, and the other guests can drink on their own time if they don't like the wine :)
Got a week left, want to get a head start.
