Fun restaurant with nonalcoholic cocktails?
Chowhounds - looking for a place to invite friends for a birthday dinner. Looking for a place with good food that can accommodate a good sized group (10 or so on a Sunday evening.) I'm pregnant, and would love to celebrate my birthday and be able to have more than just a half glass of wine. Can anyone recommend a place with great nonalcoholic drinks? Recently I've had ginger mint limeade (founding farmers), a blueberry/mint/lime concoction (zola). Can anyone think of another place that would fit the bill? I've heard rumors of interesting drinks at Zaytinya but can't seem to find a menu showing nonalcoholic drinks. Thanks in advance!

BlueHIll Tavern. Piv's Pub. Prime Rib. All restaurants can make your dwinks without alky.
Resurrecting this post: I am in this exact same boat - I turn 30 (and 22 weeks) in August. I am very, very tired of faux mojitos and faux just-leave-out-the-alcohol type drinks -- they usually don't taste that great. I'm coming from out of town and would love a couple additional recs . . . !
Cafe Atlantico and Oyamel have lots of aguas frescas and Cafe Atlantico has some interesting fruit and lemonade drinks as well. The most interesting non-alcoholic drinks I have had in the DC area were at Restaurant Eve - the bartender there can make many of his drinks in a tasty non-alcoholic version. Of course, not the place to go for a cheap, fun dinner, but for the $13.50 bar lunch, it's a wonderful deal.
