Need to organize work dinner in Gtown or Rosslyn

Hi - I just learned I'm organizing a work dinner for 13 in Georgetown or Rosslyn next week. Any suggestions for a big group (of mostly 20-30 somethings but a few more senior people)? Any thoughts about Hook? There's always Sequoia but the extracurriculars might be a bit much. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Not sure how Hook does with a large group, but Neyla might be able to work with you if the food appeals.

      I actually had a group of clients (about 10-12) go to Hook earlier this week for dinner and said while the food was great, the service was not so much.

      How about Agraria? I do work functions there with large groups and both the food and service are fantastic.

        I've had mixed experiences at Hook. I don't think it would be good for a group dinner. You could try out a place like J. Paul's or Clyde's.

        I know a lot of people don't like Paolo's but I think they have pretty good Italian food, and have seen many big group dinners there. Plus, you could order a lot of their gourmet pizzas and appetizers to share. They do have some of the best seasoned breadsticks and hummus/dip around.
