i'm getting married next fall in washington, dc and currently looking for some good rehearsal dinner restaurants. the size of the group is about 50, so need either a decent size room to rent, or just smaller size place where we can rent the whole thing.
as for food, hoping to find something either italian or american, but open to all suggestions. good appetizers are also key, as is a good wine list. prefer to have a more modern setting, so long as the food isn't compromised. partial outdoor space would be ideal.
thanks for any suggestions. if you've been to a rehearsal dinner anywhere in DC, please at least post the name and i'll check it out.
