Been searching the boards and found a similar string, but looking for something a little different.
We are doing a celebratory dinner this Saturday for 11 people (short notice!) and are looking for something moderately priced (entrees between 25-30) that is walking distance from the Mellon Auditorium (for us, this means about 6 blocks).
Would like to stay east of the White House and south of H Street. We have a diverse group, with some pickiness, so would not consider Indian or Asian fare (at least for this dinner). Already ruled out Old Ebbitt.
We're looking for someplace fun, moderately noisy with quality food.
Some current considerations:
* Brasserie Beck
* Taberna Del Alabardero (even though this is out of the stated range)
* J&G Steakhouse
We are going purely on recommendations, as none of us is really familiar with the DC dining scene. :)
Thanks in advance!
