Wanted: Rehearsal Dinner in Manhattan Beach
We're looking for a nice restaurant with good food that has a private room for a wedding rehearsal dinner in Manhattan Beach. Out-of-town guests predominantly from NJ, FL, and TX. Tastes are discriminating but an atmosphere that accommodate families with children is paramount.
Is there no hope to avoid a chain restaurant?!?!
A couple places to suggest, I've been to large family gatherings at both (with older children)
