Ethiopian Advent/Lenten feasts?

I stumbled into something at Etete for Lent. I don't remember exactly what it was, I think the waitress just described it as a special, so we went for it. I assume it was good, being Etete, but honestly my only recollection of the meal was my friend eating one of the stuffed hot peppers. That did not go well.

BWI Airport (or Dulles or DCA)

Does anyone have an eatery in BWI that they can recommend? I'm usually stuck with McDonald's, Quizno's, etc. when I fly. Today's Times had an article about airport food (http://travel.nytimes.com/2008/12/21/...) but skipped DC.

Favorite Thai restaurants in D.C., nothern Virginia?

I've been to Rice a couple of times in the past few weeks, and I've loved it both times. It doesn't have everything you'd want in a Thai restaurant, but it's nice for a change.

Private Room for Lunch Rec needed

One of my duties at work is to arrange lunches for foreign visitors. Our two basic criteria are that we must have a private room (usually for 10-15) people, and that the total cost (3 courses, non-alcoholic beverages, and gratuity), be not significantly about $35 per person.

We get a lot of use out of places like Caucus Room, Butterfield 9, Oval Room, etc., that all offer private dining menus, but I'm hoping to branch out a bit.

Anyone have suggestions for places to try? I'm looking into PS 7's, Nathan's Lunch, and couple of other spots, but could use ideas.

Oh, and within the district, but metro accessibility is not a concern.

Thanks!
