Germany's elitist group in China? (6,3)
I believe the answer is:
'china?' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'germany's elitist group' is the wordplay.
'germany' becomes 'd' (vehicle registration code for Deutschland).
'elitist' becomes 'inner' (as in an inner circle).
'group' becomes 'set' (both can mean a collection).
'in' is the link.
(Other definitions for dinner set that I've seen before include "Table service" , "might be taken out for a meal" , "Collection of plates and dishes" , "Plates etc" , "Complete service of plates and dishes for a meal" .)
