Good afternoon hounds!
I am looking for a suggestion because I just cannot make up my mind on my own with this one. I am celebrating a new opportunity in several weeks. What I want to do is tell all my friends to come and enjoy themselves and I will pay for the food. The plan would be for me to spend $100-$150 (no more than 10 people will be there) on shareable food and then the guests would be responsible for purchasing their own drinks.
I have a lot of wino friends but they also like beer and I am really into fun beers (more than wine).
I want a place where the food will be great and enough but no one will be gorging (though it will be a dinner).
Arlington, Alexandria, or metro accessible DC.
My thoughts right now (my current favorites) would be Cork, Proof, Beck, Zaytinya.
