Senor Peppers, Conn Ave?

Um, if you liked Lomita Dos you probably won't like Senor Peppers. At least that's my experience. They tex-mexed up the presenation of everything (food, menu, decor), reduced the portions and quality of ingredients, and increased the price. We used to go pretty regularly because it's in our neighborhood. We've switched to Arucola.

Wedding site for 100 near DC with great food and onsite lodging

Thank you all so much. We've checked out many of your suggestions. Antrim 1844 was a little too far from airports for our 90-year-old grandparents. 100 King is a beautiful space and definitely in the running. Oldtown, VA was a terrific suggestion. 2941 was too pricey. Arts Club of DC seems to offer the most comprehensive package. We're still looking, but you all helped a lot. thanks again.

Thanks to you both for the suggestion. I checked out Antrim and it looks great, if as you said, a little pricey. But that's exactly the type of place we're looking for. Also, Kimpton might not be a bad idea--do you know if any of the DC properties have a garden?
Thanks again.

Wedding site for 100 near DC with great food and onsite lodging

I scoured the boards to find suggestions for this, then thought I'd post my own and cross my fingers.

I'm looking for a place in or near DC (up to 50 mile radius) for 100 people for a wedding ceremony and reception. Ideal criteria: good food--either highbrow or lowbrow, lodging on-site, not astronomical prices, interesting decor and/or outdoor view/setting.

We're open to all kinds of alternative venues. Our main priority (behind budget) is that our guests are comfortable and have a good time (read: good food, plenty of liquor, inexpensive lodging). Any ideas?
