Help! Last minute group dinner for 7 Girls in DC on Friday Night?

A group of girl friends (7 people) in their mid to late 30s are having an impromptu get together on Friday. Any great suggestions for a place where we might be able to get in last minute? My only criteria is that it has to be a really fun and lively atmosphere, and be able to accommodate us between 7:00 (earliest) and 9:30PM (latest). I was thinking somewhere in Shaw, U Street, Penn Quarter, or Columbia Heights. But I'm really open to anywhere where we could also have cocktails/mocktails afterwards too. Any advice would be much appreciated...

  1. Try Oya in Penn Quarter. It is perfect for what you are looking for.

    1. Just took a look at Open Table and it seems as if you could get in to Boqueria and Zentan. Both would be a good option (although not exactly in the areas you mentioned).

      You should give Sei, Rasika, Mintwood Place, Masa 14, and Lincoln a call and see if they could fit you in as well. Have fun!

      1. Maybe Corduroy? Or is that too stiff?

        1. We are going to try Oya and see how it goes. Thanks for the feedback, everyone!
