We are a group of 5+ friends who meet quarterly to gab (and eat). We like to sit for hours.
We used to meet at La Madeleine at MidPike Plaza, but it's gone now and the new one at Pike & Rose is not as comfy for sitting for hours.
We've also met sometimes at Mon Ami Gabi on Bethesda Row, but we're looking for other places.
We need access to easy parking (doesn't have to be free, but not too much) on Saturday mornings, American food or other easy cuisines as some of our friends are not adventurous eaters, not super crowded and no judgment/push from wait staff if we choose to sit and chat for a while after the food is gone (we leave good tips).
MoCo (Rockville/Bethesda) best, but willing to consider other locations as some of our friends live in Virginia.
