A moderately priced business dinner (for 10) close to downtown?

grocerytrekker Oct 23, 2008 02:10 PM

Since food is not the top priority for this type of gathering, I normally opt for Ozumo or Shanghai 1930 (best location) but these are too pricey.

The best option would be a Chinese place which could pass for a business dinner venue. Not too formal, though. Cozy is good.

I haven't been to Chinese places lately, except for a recent gathering at Hunan Home in Chinatown (liked neither the food nor the atmosphere). How is Empress of China? Tian Sing?

Now, it doesn't have to be Chinese, of course. I thought of Chinese because of good price to value factor. I can't think today, so I am asking for your help.

Please give me interesting new (and tried and true) options, within, say, a mile radius from the Ferry Building.

Warm regards

    Louie's? For a group of ten you can get one of their tables in a shoji room, which makes it perfect for a business dinner. There have been lots of reports of meals there, if you look at the threads on its places page.

      Exactly the type of place I am looking for, it sounds like.
      Thanks, Ruth.

      We've done business dinners at R&G Lounge. They have big round tables with the lazy susan that could seat all 10 of you which is nice.
