We are having our wedding in mid-october in crystal city. All I have left to plan is the rehearsal dinner...but, there are many stipulations family members have put on us. It's like a foodie nightmare. Here is the list of criteria... if you have an idea for a restaurant please let me know..
-Must be able to serve/hold group of 30 at 6 p.m.
-Must have at least 3 vegetarian options
-Not focused on "fish" dishes or have fish sauce (like in Thai food)
-Must be within 10 minute ride of Arlington and not in DC
-Must have easy parking
-Must be handicap accessible
-Entrees around $15 (mid-level price)
-Can not be "ethnic" (no Indian, Ethiopian, Thai, Mexican, Lebanese etc.) - according to grandma, Italian and Chinese are ok but she prefers "American" food she can get without spices or sauces...
Options that have been rejected already by the family: Bistro Bistro, Carlyle Grand, Bebo, PR Grill, McCormick & Schmick, Harry's Tap Room...
