Venue Spotlight: Famoso Restaurant & M Cafe

A few weeks ago I was treated to a fantastic lunch by the lovely Megan Showers at Famoso Restaurant and M Cafe in Chevy Chase, MD. She's one of the nicest venue event managers I know!

The lower level has a restaurant called M Cafe. It's a modern space and is very busy during the lunch hours. They can fit about 150 people standing in this space and 80 seated for a full meal:The entire front of the restaurant is full of sunny windows. On the lower level they have outdoor seating during nicer months and open up the windows to create an indoor/outdoor space. Upstairs the windows lend beautiful natural light to an otherwise more romantic space. Unfortunately it makes my photos look like crap but you get the idea.

Upstairs is Famoso Restaurant, a darker and more sophisticated Italian restaurant. They have capacity for 200 standing or 90 seated:There is a smaller private room called the wine room (guess what they store there?). This one would be great for a shower, bridesmaids luncheon, or even a post-wedding brunch. They can seat 35 in this room:Famoso's has this cool horseshoe/oval-shaped bar:This one hurts my eyes a little but shows the neat lounge furniture they have. They can move these pieces anywhere in either restaurant and really set up a funky club atmosphere for you:I love the space at Famoso's and M Cafe and cannot tell you how amazing the food was. If you're looking for a venue for your wedding reception or rehearsal dinner, look no further!
