My fiance and I are having a VERY small wedding ceremony (10-15 guests) and my wonderful mom has offered to take everyone out for a nice meal afterwards. Money isn't an issue at this point - we'll worry about that when narrowing down our options. We're looking for something in DC or the Maryland suburbs. Also, my fiance's mom isn't very adventurous when it comes to food, so we'd like to stick to Americanish cuisine.
Finally, stupid question, but we'd probably want to bring a cake, do restaurants allow that?
