Eastside dinner for 20 recs?
Looking for a place for a company dinner. About 20 people anticipated. A private room would be nice but is not required.
Would like to spend about $30/person on food...any recommendations? Should be something with a comfortable feel to it (not SeaStar formal, but not Bamboo Garden informal). Type of cuisine not an issue. Just want a laid back atmosphere for us to socialize and enjoy a meal together.
Location-wise, prefer Bellevue (central) but will consider Kirkland also.
You could also try Brix Wine Cafe in Kirkland (Juanita). I didn't love love love the food when we went last month, but they do have a private room that probably seats 15-20. Not sure if you wanted actual sit down dinner or just private space. Menu is such that they can probably work out something in the $30 pp range (without wine).
Can't think of too many non-informal, private room restaurants in Bellevue/Kirkland for $30.00 or less/person. The one place that jumps to mind is I Love Sushi in DT Bellevue. I believe they have a private room in the back but I don't know how many it seats. As I recall, the wall moves so that might accomodate more people. They have more dishes than raw fish, so everyoe can eat. Good Luck!
