place in D.C. for graduation dinner

  • m

Hey Guys,
I am looking for a good place to eat in D.C. for a graduation dinner. The stipulations are : they must have some good vegetarian food, no italian, and price range between $20-25 per entree. I am having a hard time meeting all the criteria and there are 16 people to satisfy, so if anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

    I am vegetarian and I looooooved Georgia Browns -- mostly because they had a selection of entrees for veggies instead of the usual "steamed vegetable plate" for an inflated price! I think its in the price range you mentioned. My dining companions had non-veggie entrees and loved them too. Its pretty hearty Southern fare, though. Don't know if you are looking for something lighter/more elegant.

    One of the finer Indian restaurants would serve your veggies well, if the rest of your party is open to that.

      thanks for the response. Georiga brown's sounds like a good suggestion, I'll pass it along to the other people involved. As far as Indian food, a large percentage of the people heading out for this occasion are Indian, and I think everyone wants a change. Please send any other ideas you may have.
      thanks again

        If you are looking for Indian, you should try Heritage India off Wisconsin. Fabulous Indian food. A bit pretentious at times but it has some of the best Indian food I have tried in the city.

    2. When we've been at Sequoia we've noticed lots of happy celebrations taking place - graduation,birthday, small family reunions, etc taking place at nearby tables. The food is good, the views of the Potomac are great.
