Hi! I have a group that is meeting up in early November at the DC convention center, about 10, no kids, professional group but not too stuffy. We will want to do a Monday night dinner, we'll want to be able to have some good conversation, so the atmosphere is important. I'd also like it to have excellent food! We will all be staying in various places, probably most are near the convention center but also folks will range from virginia to bethesda, so simplicity calls for walking distance. Many out-of-towners, so someplace that is safe to walk to/from at night. I have no idea about food preferences of this group except that it shouldn't be a place full of fried food, so it would have to be general. I did a search of the board, and see things like matchbox, zaytinya, bistro d'oc, cafe atlantico, and palena comes up a lot but I don't think that is nearby. I have no idea where to start! Thanks!
