We’re sharing our favorites spots for a professional and foolproof DC corporate meal.


A private room is a must for your important occasion. We love RIS because they have multiple options for completely private dining. Their State Room is the perfect spot for up to 10 guests and their Federal Room seats up to 35.

Need visuals to promote your cause? The Federal Room has a drop-down screen and LED projector. They will even print personalized dated menus with your chosen heading or logo. RIS’s attention to detail gives that professional edge so you can impress and win over your guests.
