Group Dinner, 15 People, East of Western, Under $35

The title of the post pretty much says it all. I'm planning a dinner for a large group of people (between 10 and 15) and looking for ideas. I'd like to keep it under $35/person (with booze), and stay between Western and the 5 (those boundaries are slightly flexible). Definitely looking for something fun and festive. Good food is, obviously, a prereq.

Korean BBQ is the obvious choice, and I'm happy with that, but wondering if there's anything else I should be thinking about. Ethiopian would be great, but I don't want to go that far west.

Can anyone think of places that fit the bill?

Thanks in advance for the help.

  1. Yong Su San, on Vermont, has private rooms and a variety of set menus that may be in your price range.

      Interesting. It looks like there are pretty mized reviews of Yong Su San on here. But you like it?

        A few years back, it was considered uniformly excellent. Haven't been in the recent past so I don't know if it has faded a bit.

        Here's a link to an L.A. Times article from 2005. It's at number 15.
