Samurai theme night, party of 8
looking for suggestions for a good japanese restaurant, maybe izakaya, that can handle a group of 8 -9 for tomorrow night. it's a casual night, we're taking in a samurai flick and i know i get a little noshy after 2 hours of swordfighting, but who doesn't? so, big party, tasty cocktails, good food, and hopefully a/c - we'll be in the sawtelle/santa monica area. thinking about reserving a room at Musha, but i'm not that familiar with the west side, so if anyone out there has any other ideas, i'd appreciate it!
