Again this year I seek your advice in finding appropriate dining for a large (and getting larger) association dinner following our DC meetings. Last year you folks pointed us in the direction of Rogue 24. We took the entire place and had a great time. Year before it was Zatinya, and again your advice resulted in a successful dinner. The ask: restaurant (or maybe a private space with catered meal) in the District, that can seat 60 to 70 people, in one room, food that is leading-edge (but maybe with a nod to those who felt R24 was a little too "frou-frou" it could have more meat-and-potatoes options), at the end of May.
Almost as an aside, I've been asked to help find a restaurant at the end of January for 10-12 people in the District. The group leader has suggested Jaleo as a favorite of hers, but is open to something more adventurous.
