In November our daughter will be a bat mitzvah. We're looking for restaurants within 30 minutes (max) of the Bethesda/Rockville area that can seat up to 110 people while still offering a small dance area.
Our daughter prefers Spanish, Portuguese, Greek, Southeast Asian, Middle Eastern, and Japanese foods. The only foods she has said she really doesn't want are Chinese and Italian, which limits the search somewhat. I should mention that we don't want to make the event ridiculously expensive because we don't have the money to do so.
We are going to look at Busboys and Poets in Hyattsville and Jackie's in Silver Spring. From here, I've read about Tysons Corner's Clyde's as a possibility. We've also considered Lebanese Taverna in Bethesda. (Jaleo Bethesda might be a possibility, but I think we'd have to rent the whole restaurant if we have 110 seated diners, which would likely be cost-prohibitive.)
Anyone have other ideas that would work with these parameters?
Thanks very much.
