50th birthday/approx 45-50 people
I am trying to help plan my mom's 50th birthday in mid/late september. she loves all kinds of foods and atmospheres, but would probably like to stay away from kitsch or mexican. something nice--we were considering mastro's and roy's but i think they both already had parties booked the weekend in question. any suggestions would be much appreciated!
the patio at pane e vino would be great.
upstairs2 is a good choice for parties.
also, gardens on glendon or napa valley grille in westwood would accommodate those parties well.

You didn't specify a neighborhood, but I'm a big fan of Chez Mimi for special events. The food there is quite good, Her prices are not outrageous and the space is lovely. You can have appetizers and drinks on the outdoor patio, then go to one of the private rooms. Mimi really works with you to create what you want, and the staff is top notch.
another spot that can accomodate 40-50 easily would be opus. they have an enclosed patio area that can fit up to 70 (iirc).
