Brunch for a large group

I have a bunch of friends coming into town this weekend for a friends wedding, and would like to do a brunch on Sunday. The group could be as big as 20, but depending on people's flights/schedules I'm guessing 10-15. Looking for good food, chill spot (read: non-stuffy) and drinks. Here's my list of brunch places that I've gathered:

Tabard
Acadiana
Masa 14
Ulah Bistro
Vinoteca
Art and Soul
Birch and Barley

I wanted to do El Centro's bottomless brunch, but unless it's only 6 of us, it won't work. Also, most will be coming from Bethesda...

TIA

    Might be hard to get a reservation for that large of a group this late in the game but you might want to consider doing Masa 14's all you eat and drink brunch. It's delicious and a really good deal...especially with a large group. You can basically order the entire menu and hang out, drink, and chat. It will only cost you $35/person + tax and tip. I went with a few girlfriends a few months ago and we had a blast. Just don't plan to be productive for the rest of the day haha

    I think Acadiana would be another great option.

      I think you'll have a problem with 20 people on such short notice at most of those places. If it doesn't HAVE to be in DC, you should consider contacting Lia's in Friendship Heights - they have a lovely brunch and might be able to accomodate that. Maybe also consider Darlington House, which is where I had my side of the family for dinner the Friday before my wedding and they were great to work with - solid food, nice atmosphere, and the service was excellent.

      One last place to consider would be Urbana - they have a very large table in the middle of the restaurant that you might be able to book.

      All of these places are off of the red line, so convenient to Bethesda.

        Brunch at the Tabard Inn is excellent. However, I'd call them this very second -- I'd be shocked if they could accommodate you on such short notice.

          For that big a group, I would try Old Ebbitt's. I had brunch there with a crowd of 20 and they were great. We were out in the Atrium and all enjoyed it.

            I coordinated a big brunch (about 14 people) at Ulah's on Inauguration Day no less. They were great, especially considering that we got there at different times since some of us had to walk all the way from the mall!
