I am looking for a recommendation for wine (or beer) and small plates for a group of 6 trying to all reconnect. We are all in our 20's and want a place that we can really have some fun and chat and enjoy reconnecting but to dance or anything like that, we would just leave and go elsewhere (we wouldnt tie one on where we were eating). I have some reservations for Proof and I was really excited about it but i think the prices are going to be a little high. I would like to stay around $30 PP all inclusive. With the wine prices at proof, i thought that would be a little tough (maybe i am wrong). Does anyone have any other suggestions for good places, either Dupont/Georgetown/Penn Quarter area? we are certainly not epicurean but it would be cool to do a place that would be unique for most of us.
help me out please!
