Anneversary Dinner for 8 next week: any ideas?
We've got a group of four couples, whose kids have been hanging out together since pre-school, and are now heading off to college, everyone got married in April, and we've been anniversarying together for a decade or so.. The kids are about to head off to college, so we're all 40+to 50+ We're looking for nice-ish ambiance (or at least the wives are) , maybe a private room, either a semi-reasonably price wine list or reasonable corkage. Some of the members are not looking for ethnic adventure, or I'd be pitching the SGV. Downtown, or close to it would be nice. Patina at Disney has been suggested, but their prices seem pretty steep in terms of bang-per-buck.
I'm brain-dead today. Somebody throw me some ideas, please!!!!
Not downtown, but not far either -- maybe Cafe Beaujolais in Eagle Rock?
Bashan is nice too, but a bit skimpy on the food for the price.
Pacific Dining Car?
Pinot at the library?
Blair's? You could walk!
if you'd be willing to come up to mid-wilshire, maybe Campanile, though it may be more than you'd like to spend.
