Hey hounds! I'm having a birthday celebration dinner in DC for about 17-25 people. Every year I have gone to Jaleo (one of my favorites!) but this year the party has gotten too big and the restaurant wants to do a tasting menu to make it easier. This kind of defeats the purpose for Jaleo - usually everyone gets 3 tapas that they want and shares it, not everyone getting the same tapas with limited options. Anyway, I'm trying to think of some good places that won't break the bank, must be IN THE DISTRICT (and metro accessible), that could accommodate a group like this for dinner. We don't need a private room or anything, just a good amount of space. Also, the dinner is on a Monday night.
Thanks and chow down!
