Rec near Omni Shoreham

ransom Sep 11, 2008 07:13 PM

Looking for an informal bar/restaurant near the Omni Shoreham Hotel in D.C. (near the zoo) for a group of women (anything between 6 and 12 in number) to eat, drink and gossip comfortably on Friday night. We are attending a fundraiser for a charity we all volunteer for and only know each other online.

We will be flying in from all over NA, and income levels will vary widely - I'm anxious that we can find somewhere decent with a friendly vibe and with prices that won't embarrass anyone.

Recs for a good breakfast spot nearby would also be appreciated.

    Both Open City and Lebanese Taverna can probably flexibly accommodate seating for 6-12 diners. You can have breakfast at Open City too.

    Open City
    2331 Calvert St NW, Washington, DC 20008

    Lebanese Taverna Restaurant
    2641 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 02007

      Right across the street from you is a great breakfast spot called Open Table.

      If you are willing to walk a little bit, you can head up to Cleveland Park (1 metro stop or about a 15 minute walk) and grab drinks and food at Bardeo. They also have a nice sit down restaurant next door (Ardeo) if you decide for a sit-down meal.

      Heading towards Adams Morgan (again only a 10-15 minute walk), I would go to The Reef, Perrys, or Bourbon. All have drinks, decent food and large areas for your group to gather.

        Many thanks. I'll have a look at all of those online.
