Dinner for Large Group in DC Area

Looking for Chowish food to satisfy a somewhat adventurous large group of about 15 people for dinner in the DC area. We don't necessarily need a private room, but we do need something that isn't too loud.

  1. Meiwah, at NH and M Streets has a room upstairs and Chinese is always good for sharing.

    1. Buca Di Beppo in upper Dupont is fun for large groups. They serve their food family style so it is good for sharing and the portions ar elarge.

        1. Zengo, Rasika, and Brasserie Beck can all get loud in the main dining rooms, but all are fun for groups and have private/semi-private rooms available.
          At Zengo I'd recommend any of the sushi rolls, the beef short ribs (not great for summer, but excellent nonetheless), and the black cod. The salad with grilled chicken and empanadas are also great for sharing.
          At Rasika get the Chicken Makhani, the Crispy Spinach, and the black cod.
          And I had a phenomenal rabbit at Brasserie Beck the other night. Also don't miss their selection of mussels and huge variety of beers.

          1. How Acadiana, PS7 or Ceiba? All are very delicious and I know especially Acadiana can has a great private room.

            Acadiana-Stylized cajun cuisine
            PS7-Sylish American with a lot of items that people can share. Very creative dishes (think mini tuna tartar sliders and mini gourmet red hots and sausages as well as hanger steak, fish etc.)
