Restaurant with large screen tv while dining?

My birthday is on Aug. 8 and I want to have a dinner with a group of friends 15-20 or so at a reasonably priced restaurant where we can also watch the Olympic opening ceremonies at the same time. I love the pagentry. Some of my guests will have children so a private room with large TV would be ideal. Open to ethnic suggestions. Anything come to mind? I live in WeHo so Hollywood or points West would be ideal. Thanks in advance for you help.

    Go to any Hong Kong-style cafe in the SGV. I'm sure they'll be showing the opening ceremonies.

      Place Yu on Sawtelle and Olympic is a sushi restaurant with a large screen TV. It's not super expensive, but it's not super cheap either.

        Is this place still open? I am having trouble finding out anything about it and the phone goes to a fast busy signal....I'm still looking for a restaurant where my party can watch a large flat screen tv while dining. Help please with suggestions.

          Japanese izakaya/sushi. Very good food. Open for dinner. Not sure when the opening ceremony will be televised, though...

            I haven't been there in a while, but i'm in the area all the time and It's definitely still open.

          This may not be a "reasonable" option but...The Palm (in West Hollywood) has a room in the back which has a TV - you could probably reserve the room for your group.
