I'm planning a 30th birthday dinner for my wife on a Saturday night in late March. My idea is to reserve a private room in a restaurant; the head count will probably be ~20 people.
I've looked into Olives & Tabard Inn so far - we like these restaurants very much, but the cost is pushing the envelope a bit. For either restuarant, I'm looking at ~$1200 + drinks, tax & gratuity.
Does anyone know of other restaurants (preferably in DC but bethesda/old town/arlington would also be considered) of similar caliber that could accomodate me - especially at a lower price tag? Sushi or Indian cuisines are not an option.
Thanks for any ideas.
