Can anyone recommend a good location for an intimate dinner for 18-24 people in DC/Northern VA? Excellent food is key and a nice atmosphere/ambiance. I would also like a private room that would preferably have one large table for the whole group. Places I’ve looked at are Poste, Sonoma, Tabard Inn, Zaytinya. Any other recommendations?

@arlr106: My fiance (who is from the DC area) suggests the Occidental Grill.

Do you have a budget in mind and/or a location?
In the city I’d pick Old Ebbett Grill (a classic that never disappoints); Cuba Libre (relatively new, has quite the buzz about it, great food and nice atmosphere although it can get pretty festive late at night); the Capitol Grille (old school elegant steakhouse) or Tony and Joe’s in Georgetown (seafood, small menu but lots of specials, great view of the water). All have private rooms to accommodate you.
Northern Virginia is pretty huge sp if you narrow it down at least to a city, you’ll get suggestions!

It’s a little pricey, but Restaurant 2941 is IMMACULATE! The food there is amazing and the decor is very chic and modern.

I’m thinking no more than $2500. In Northern VA I’m looking into Alexandria, Arlington, or Falls Church.

@acebride: Thanks! 2941 is actually one of my top 3 locations right now. My only hesitation is that I would also prefer a location that had other nightlife close by so that after the dinner we could still go out if the night is young. I haven’t seen the private rooms yet but I know the food is top notch.
