DC recs, please: Great food, good atmosphere for int'l visitors

Hello fellow hounds,

Am hoping you can provide some recommendations. We have a group coming to DC from several countries from the former Soviet Union in August. What is the best restaurant to take them to?

Good food is an absolute must.

If it had some political significance/ambiance or a great view, that would be a bonus. We're not tied to "American" style food per se, but it would be nice. We need for there to be decent veg/vegan options, since some people will be fasting Eastern Orthodox style during that time (no animal products of any kind).

A private room would be nice, but not mandatory if the volume level of the place is low. We will likely go on a weeknight.

There will be about 20 of us, and we're looking to spend $50-60 per person for three courses (not including booze). A place that would work with us to put together a fixed price menu with a few apps, mains, and desserts from which to choose from would be ideal.

Any and all ideas would be greatly appreciated.
