Business Dinner Group of 10-14 Near Downtown Rennaisance

Any suggestions for an April business dinner not too much more than a 10 minute cab ride from the Downtown Renaisance?

Prefer anything that is uniquely DC but if there is no such thing just good food and an atmosphere where you can have a conversation. Private dining rooms would be a plus.

Pricewise...If Seasonal Pantry or Minibar is a "5" and McDOnald's is a "1", I am looking for a "3" or "4".

Thanks in advance

Anything to Eat in the Kirkland Area?

Family will be staying in Kirkland for a few days before finishing our trip downtown. Like most foodies, would like to visit someplace that is unique to the area and the Pacific Northwest. Is there anything nearby?

Nice Brunch in KC

I've searched the archives and can't find anything recent that really gives me what I'm looking for: Nice Sunday Brunch. Not too expensive or formal (e.g., Peppercorn, Benton's, Intercontinental) not too informal or everyday (e.g., Cinzetti's). We've likes Bristol and Figlio's but would like to try solmething new.

Any suggestions? North of 135th, between 435 on the east and west, SOuth of the river.

Thanks so much

Family with Young kids Marriott Wardman Park

Our first evening in DC. We just checked-in. What is there within a 5-10 minute walk that is affordable (for DC). Italian would be good, American/Continental other suggestions would be appreciated if those aren't available. Kids aren't too adventurous after a day of traveling

Same request for breakfast tomorrow morning.

THanks in advance

Yakitori across from Tian Sing/Cyril Magnin

I'm looking for interesting places to eat in the Union Square area I've had dim sum at Tian Sing (okay) and might like to find some Yakitori, Southeast Asian or Indian. I saw a Japanese place across from Tian Sing and wondered if that was any good. I also can see a place called Naan n Curry from my hotel.

Any tips?

Eats Sheraton 4Pts 630 East Rush

Is there anything typically Chicago or really good cheap eats near the Sheraton Four Points? Even better if they're open late. I'm traveling without wife and kids for the first time in a long time and would like to indulge the chowohund in me with a late night snack or a good cheap eats run on one or two of the next three nights I'm here.

While I'm at it I might as well ask about someplace that would be open for breakfast early (6 or 7am)

Finally Has anyone been to the Whilte Palace? WHat do you think?
