HELP! sgv bday banquet tonight...WHERE?

BIM Nov 28, 2008 11:45 AM

It's my birthday today (a big one - don't ask) and suddenly everyone wants to go out to San Gabriel (or Monterey Park or Alhambra or wherever) for a big dinner because they know it's my favorite thing to do. So guess who has to find and book a place?

I'm guessing 15-20 people, includes kids. I was thinking either a big hong kong seafood style place like NBC or 888 or I don't know...what about triumphal palace? Elite seafood?

Someone tell me what to do!

thanks hounds

    Those a all good choices. How about Shakas in Alhambra for some Hawiian fair. Then over to Fosellmans for dessert.? Petrillos on Valley in Sangabriel for great pizza and italian fair? Happy B-day, Enjoy!

        Triumphal Palace is great for Dim Sum, and I can only imagine it has good food as well. Its quite elegant in there, and I think it has a private room. Mission 621 is very pretty, but I have not been there in a while. Capitol Seafood next to 99 Ranch Market is very pretty and has good dim sum, I have seen them partition off their room.

          Just one wrinkle. Triumphal Palace is ... OUT OF BUSINESS!

                  Wow, well I always liked it. So, I need a more serene substitute to alternate with Capitol Seafood. I don't like Elite or Sea Harbour.
