Budget-conscious lunch for 20 in DC -- recs?

Having a celebration lunch for colleagues in DC or Arlington at the end of April and location is my choice (they think it's a chore -- I think lucky me!) Budget is about $50-60 per person including drinks, tax and tip. Assuming the weather is nice, we'd love to be outside but not necessary. No sushi. I was thinking about Zaytinya, which is pretty spacious and not super expensive -- or Marvin, which I know is tighter but has a great roofdeck for afterwards. Would love other suggestions.

  1. PS7 has an outdoor patio area which is nice and can fit 20 people. For lunch you can def. get out of there for $50/person or so.

    Sette Osteria has a nice outdoor area as does Tabard Inn.

      PS7 is a good idea, though I wonder if they'd give over their whole patio to us without charging a fee. Also, the crowd is big on meat and seafood. Any other thoughts?
