My fiancee and I will be having immediate-family only wedding ceremony in Rockville and are looking for a place to eat afterwards (total of 9 people including us).
My family is Cantonese and my fiancee's is from Anhui, so we'd be prefer to eat at a Chinese restaurant with authentic dishes. We're not looking for a full banquet style, but want a place that we wouldn't feel strange coming in somewhat dressed up (obviously nixing hole-in-the-walls). Oh, and we want to stay away from Sichuan places, since some of us are sensitive to spicy dishes.
I've seen Grace Garden, Joe's Noodle House and Hong Kong Palace mentioned a few times on the boards. Could someone tell me what the atmosphere is like?
And if there really isn't anything Chinese that fits the bill, would you have other recommendations? Know that we are planning a larger reception the following day, so we're not looking for a blow-out meal (~sub $40 pp) and were considering something along the lines of 8407, Dino or Palena.
Thanks in advance!
