    Chaya is a great place to party and have great food. Ditto Chinois. Both on Main in SM. Cal-Asian.

      Agree w/ Chaya.

      Tasca is fun, especially because small plates work well for groups.

      In a similar vein, AOC.

      For great Italian in your neck of the woods, I'd do dinner at Via Veneto. If you want fancier Italian, La Terza is great too, but maybe not for your occasion.

        Bar Hayama on Sawtelle. You can share a bunch of different things and the hot food is as good or better than the sushi. Katsu-Ya in Brentwood can be good for that too.
