Saturday night dinner at the Piazza at Scmidts

We want to go check out the Piazza at Schmidts with another couple on a Saturday night in a couple of weeks.
Any recommendations on which restaurant to go to?

Chowhound from Philly needs rec for 8 people on a Saturday night

I am coming to DC with my husband, 2 young kids (8 and 5, but pretty adventurous eaters), parents and in-laws for the Epilepsy Walk a few weeks from now.
We need a place for dinner Saturday night.

I'd really like to go for Thai food or some other asian food.

I used to live in No Va and I really miss the amazing Thai and Vietnamese food - I can't get good Thai where I live. But I pretty much love all ethnic food except ethiopean.

My parents are food snobs from NYC - they like really authentic asian food.

My in-laws are the complete opposite of food snobs - they like americanized asian food.

We're staying in SW DC, but are fine with driving or taking transportation to pretty much anywhere in DC, Arlington or Alexandria.


Where to go for a business dinner near the Four Seasons

A client would like to take me and a colleague out for dinner on a Wednesday night and I need to suggest a place.
I don't want to go anywhere too formal or outrageously expensive, but would like to go somewhere very nice with good food that's not too noisy. I'm leaning away from a BYOB.
Any recommendations?

Looking for Thai near convention center

Chowhound from Philly staying at the Embassy Suites near the convention center on Saturday night with two small boys (4 and 7). I used to live in Arlington, and really really miss the thai food in DC. I know I can get better Thai in the burbs, but I'd rather stay in the area near my hotel.
Any decent thai in that area?


The Bakery House in Bryn Mawr for Birthday Cake

We have gotten several cakes there, and everyone has loved one. My husband is a huge cake fan (I am not), and that is his favorite place to get cakes.
