So a whole bunch of relatives are coming to town for my cousin's wedding, and I, being the only DC local in the family, have been assigned the task of finding a restaurant for the wedding party and family to eat after the wedding and reception. The wedding is in Kensington, and they're thinking (wisely, I think) that trying to get everyone into the city for dinner when nobody knows where they're going, on a Friday night, is probably a bad idea, so the area under consideration is Kensington/Silver Spring/Wheaton. Unfortunately, being a city kid with no car, I don't know the restaurant scene in the suburbs at all, really, which brings me here.
A couple of particulars:
* My aunt and uncle, who are footing the bill, don't have a ton of money, and their wallets will probably already be well-stretched before paying for a dinner for twenty, so this needn't be fancy. It'd be good if the atmosphere was such that someone in a button-up shirt and maybe a sport coat wouldn't look out of place (so, no drive-in burger shacks), but needn't be much nicer than that. Entrees should probably fall somewhere in $10-$25 territory.
* Lots of my family members are not city people, and the latest Nicaraguan/Japanese fusion is probably beyond their palates, so I'm looking for something reasonably accessible (seafood, Italian, new American, etc.).
* It should be able to accommodate a reservation for 20.
* Oh, and most of them are teetotalling Mormons, so things like the wine list, corking fee, etc., are not considerations.
