Small wedding reception dinner

I'm having a small wedding reception for about 25 people in May. There will be small children, so I'd like a place with a private dining area. I'm open to food choices, but Italian or some sort of Asian fusion would be preferable. Great food is my top priority but I'd really like it to be someplace special. My budget is about $50-$75 per person. If at all possible, I'd like for people to be able to order off the menu, or at least have a smaller menu to choose from. I live in Philadelphia, so I can't do any pre-tasting. Can anyone make recommendations? Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. Any geographic section of LA in particular? It is a very spread out city.

    Just off the top of my head I'd recommend Ca'Brea - great Italian, great service, very nice private room (at least when I was there before the fire they had last year).

    Asia de Cuba has excellent Asian fusion food, and it is also in a hotel so you and your guests could stay there. On the downside, it has very modern/hipster architecture & decor, so it doesn't really scream "wedding" and at night the clientele gets pretty trendy & clubby.
