I'm looking for a fun, somewhat fancy, and delicious restaurant for my daughter's sweet 16 dinner preferably in D.C. We will have 7 or 8 friends with her and we would like a small private room or section for the party. Any cuisine is fine, although burgers, salads, and sandwiches are probably best.
Just to give you an idea, these restaurants are some of my daughter's favorite:
Matchbox, Houston's, Rio Grande, Mama Lucia's
but all have something wrong with them that makes it difficult to have a party there..
At the moment, I'm considering Palena or Rock Creek in Mazza (although I've never been to either so don't know if they have a nice room)
