Mantis or Dupont Grille??

JDS | Jun 2, 2004 09:39 AM

I am charged with planning a mid-week happy hour for 8-10 work colleagues. They expect me to show them the new, hip spots as I am younger. Criteria are: moderate prices, good food meant for sharing (we will need food but aren't "going to dinner"), comfortable, good drinks. More bar with good food than restaurant with bar, though. For some reason I also have a hard time with these things! I'm currently thinking about 2 places that I haven't been- Mantis in Adams Morgan or Dupont Grille. Also I've thought about Blue Room (never eaten there), Zayatinia (too much a a "restaurant"?), Perry's (too limited a menu?) Any ideas of fun, chic spots for a happy hour with food and somewhat moderate prices?
