weekend dinner for small group Palos Verdes area
I'm not sure if they could accommodate a group of 24, but call them anyway and try:
767 Deep Valley Drive
Rolling Hills Estates, CA 90274
Also try Restaurant Christine:
There is also the Admiral Risty but I would hesitate to recommend it -- it's a Palos Verdes institution and although the view is still nice, the place is showing its age.
I love Christine but I doubt it's within your budget, since entrees alone are in the range of your total per person. I'm not sure where else to suggest for a group of 20-24 (which i consider large, not small!). I'm wondering if it would make sense to contact some of the numerous chinese restaurants in southbay (e.g., Lomita) and try to arrange a chinese banquet?
