Birthday Dinner for 19 yr. old and family?

Founding Farmers is overpriced and when I went there the chicken and burger were overcooked and bland.

Any thoughts on Rasika or Graffiato? I work at Ardeo right now and I know Ashook just opened another.

We would kind of like to take her outside of the Foggy Bottom/ GW bubble. Haha sorry I'm being SO particular.

Lunch on Sat.-upper west side

Ahh the Modern and Jean Georges, though expensive, are great suggestions.

I would also suggest:
- The 79th St Boat Basin (spectacular view but gets very crowded when the weather is nice so plan to get there early)
- Fairway Cafe (UWS)
- Fiorello's (the food isn't as good as it used to be in 90's when I ate there as a kid, but if you all wanted to go there for dessert, the profiteroles are excellent :)
- Island Burger (Midtown)
- Menchanko- Tei (Ramen, Midtown)
- Joe's Shanghai (soup dumplings in Midtown, if you don't wanna head all the way to Chinatown)

Biz/Group Dinner in Chinatown?

Jing Fong on Elizabeth St. is HUGE and delicious, though I'm not sure how they handle big groups as I've only ever been with groups of 2 or 3.

Birthday Dinner for 19 yr. old and family?

Hellooo fellow Chowhounders!

My boyfriend's younger sister is turning 19 and we were trying to think of a good spot to take her and her boyfriend tomorrow (Saturday) evening. She's a freshman at GW, but lives on the Vern so somewhere easily accessible to Foggy Bottom is very important. I'm thinking probably staying in NW DC. She's still not to comfortable commuting to Maryland or Virginia (don't ask).

My boyfriend is leaning more on the Busboys and Poets side because she is a bit of a picky eater and we love going there just because of the fun environment and friendly service. As a native New Yorker, it pangs me, however, to go to Busboys yet again. Their food is fine but I'm always a little disappointed especially at the prices.

I've only lived in D.C. for less than a year so these suggestions would also just be great to have in the future. La Tasca is also the kind of place I think would be a great fit for her, but it might be too expensive if we're paying for 4 people. I also really love Ping Pong (for my occassional dim sum fix) and Lauriol (but it's gonna be super packed on a Saturday night).

Thanks again, ery'body!

I think about $10 at most for tapas is pretty reasonable. I'm also thinking of Italian in North End or Japanese. I also have a couple of vegeterian friends and need to cater to their palates.

Restaurant for 21st Birthday Dinner?

Hey all I'm a college student in Boston and am planning on taking about 10 of my friends out for dinner to celebrate the big 2-1 this Saturday. I love sharing style and sangria especially for big dinner parties, so I was definitely leaning more towards tapas! I heard Bar Lola is good. Anywhere along the red line is preferable, because I was thinking of taking 'em to Cambridge for bars. Also bar recommendations would be appreciated. I've heard the Enormous Room and People's Republic in Central Square are fun. Thanks guys!
