HELP! Halloween Dinner Restaurant Suggestions Needed!

I have three guests coming into town over the weekend and we'd like to go to dinner some place on Halloween evening. We're hoping to find a restaurant that is doing something special for the holiday but not throwing a huge sweaty party. A special menu with seasonal items would be great. Any ideas?

    I have no idea if they still have spots open. Keep in mind that west hollywood will basically be shut down from noon on Saturday until Sunday so probably best to cab.
