Suggestions please for LARGE GROUP DINING
Party of 11-13 -- looking for a place that has a private/semi private room with round table if possible. Recs so far:
Koji's Sushi & Shabu Shabu
Any other diners know of places with private/semi private rooms -- a place where everyone can see/hear each other?
Any budget restrictions?
Preferred area of L.A.?
Types of Cuisine(s) you want or Cuisine(s) to avoid?
To narrow it down:
Prefer between 405 and 170 in the valley (closert to Ventura better), and between 405 and 101 in LA Basin (closer to Sunset better).
Food: any but the most extreme/rare of ethnic foods (probably not Ethiopian; Vietnamese, etc.).
Price: not the most expensive tier, but anything below that, prob in the $25-$35 entree range.
Thanks for any and all suggestions!
If Country French sounds good, Chez Mimi has a private room(s) that handles 10 to 18 people. It has a beautiful rustic atmosphere about it and the food can be good; however, historically, their kitchen can't turn out quality food on the very busy major dining days (i.e., Valentine's Day). It fits nicely within your budget.
246 26th Street - Near 26th & San Vicente and 2 to 4 minutes from Sunset Blvd.
Do the search function here and see what others have said.
On their website menu for dinner, their most expensive entree is $25 but their per person price for their private dining is a tad more expensive than that would suggest; also, it says minimum size is 14 people but she told me 10 to 18 over the phone 4 months ago, so?
Check out the Chinese restaurant Bamboo, in Sherman Oaks on Ventura Blvd. I saw a private-ish room being used there last time I ate there.
In the same area is Rive Gauche, which has a back patio area that I've used to host baby showers for brunch. Not sure about party size restrictions, but it couldn't hurt to give them a call.
La Terza on 3rd & Orlando has a great room for your event & if you don't know who the chef is - you will really enjoy everything Gino Angelini does. Cheers LAJay
