A friend's celebrating her 30th birthday this Saturday and has been trying to get a reservation for a small group at PX for several weeks, but time is running out and now needs to find an alternative. (PX won't respond to her repeated emails asking about availability...but perhaps that's a topic for a separate discusson on service. I know they're quirky that way, but not responding at all, even with lead time, is just poor, imho.)
Can any 'hounds recommend something PX-like (classy but fun with great drinks) in the DC or NoVA area? (She really wants somewhere we can get dressed up.) I've thought of PS7, Poste and maybe even Oya, Cafe Atlantico, or Ceiba but am interested in any newer hot spots that might be fun.
Ideally, we need a place that can handle a reservation for 8-10 but with so little time left we may just have to try calling and charming the host into helping us. (Tips for that appreciated too!)
