Wife is turning 40 and need a nice place for 90-100 people....
Looking around for a fun place in hollywood/downtown L.A. area that can accommodate a large group, and
has good food that is not too expensive.
She really likes steak, mac n cheese and the such, any recommendations would be appreciated.
I'm also considering a fancy bar that has tasty snacks/food.
Do you require a private room, and are you looking for a usually busy night, like a Friday or Saturday? If not, then you may be able to work with someone like Church & State, or Ciudad. The Edison is a really fun place for a party - there is a great area downstairs - but I can't speak for the food.
How about The Edison? A friend had a birthday gathering there and it was great. There were only about 15-20 of us, so we didn't really make arrangements ahead of time. Maybe they'd be able to arrange something private for you and your party.

When we were there, we stuck to bar snacks--deviled eggs, fries, chicken wings and the like--and they were good as far as standard fare goes. Not "blow my mind" good but after a few cocktails, I wasn't complaining. What did blow my mind, however, was the space. It is just beautiful.
Maybe other hounds who have actually dined there can chime in.
