A Fun Family Place in Hollywood

For my father's birthday on Monday, we are renting a limo and plan to take 13 family members including young children out to dinner. Can anyone suggest a really fun, nice place in the Hollywood, Beverly Hills area?

  1. The best place to satisfy grown ups and children in my experience is Caffe Anglei. The owner knows how to keep the ankle biters happy, and they love having kids. The food and setting are both very nice. It's on Melrose. For 13, call and make a reservation.

    but they are closed on Monday.

    Also good is Ethiopian at Messob or Rosalinde's on Fairfax south of Wilshire. I like Rahel, but it is a little small for 13.

    The food is yummy, and adults will love it. Kids will love thay they can (and are supposed to) eat with thier hands.

      Just in case the OP is trying to google for info, the restaurant is called Angeli Caffe. For further suggestions, do you have any sort of budget you're trying to stay within?

        No budget, money is no object. The kids are well behaved and used to eating in restaurants.

          truthfully, and this sounds rude, but I wouldspend some of the no object money on a babysitter, go out to Spago, and bring dessert home.

            But well behaved kids are fine at Spago. It might be a good choice:

        1. If meat eaters - maybe something like Fogo de Chao on La Cienega would be fun for everyone.

          1. How about Luna Park?

            If for some reason you'd take the limo out to Malibu, Taverna Tony can be fun, though on a Monday night, doubt the belly dancers will be there.

            Not as nice, but certainly fun Mouns of Tunis...

            Also, Celadon, Mastro's, La Boheme, Belmont, Hungry Cat

              13 people at Hungry Cat would be rough since their food often comes out in waves so some people are eating while others have no food. Also, everyone has to like either seafood or burger with no substitutions.

              Moun of Tunis sounds fun, though.
