Hi - I'm having a rehearsal dinner in April in the District and am having trouble finding anyplace that will do a basic meal with wine and beer for 30 people that will come in under $3000.
This is taking us a bit by surprise since many of the same restaurants we're contacting have entrees for less than $25. I guess they're padding the prices to make up for the private room and large group service. We just hadn't figured on $100 a head.
Any ideas? We do want a private room and a sit-down affair. Perhaps this is just the going rate.
Dino's looks like they might be able to keep it under $3000.
If I'm gonna splurge and go for an over $3000 joint, I'm liking Zola.
Other thoughts? We could do Maryland too - as our hotel will be in Silver Spring, but Ray's the Classics doesn't have their party room ready yet and the Macaroni Grill isn't really what we had in mind.
