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

LindayMalia Feb 18, 2014 11:44 AM

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...

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

      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!

        Maybe Corduroy? Or is that too stiff?

            Try Seki or Eat the Rich
