      In the LA area, or by the beach, and well im a starving student so not that high end

    2. Maybe you'd like Chili's or TGI Friday's. Those places are sit down restaurants with a lot of variety, they aren't to expensive, and they serve alcohol.

        1. hmmm. how about that thai place with the singing elvis?? i think its called Palm Thai.
          wow..this is kinda hard to find a place suitable for your 21st bday needs and something suitable for a great-grandparent.

          Palms Thai Restaurant
          5900 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

          1. I wanted something more memorable and fun, more like tokyo delve's

              so why not go there? if it's too wild, maybe something like Musha...?

              Palms Thai was a good suggestion. if you want something fun and unique, something like Mouns-of-Tunis.

              or go somewhere like Lou on Vine where there's good wine... or Cube. i guess they're not too 21st birthday oriented, but they've got the booze.

              or maybe somewhere like Chaya Venice or Chaya? if they're not too pricey.

              Chaya Venice
              110 Navy Street, Venice, CA 90291

              424 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401

              Lou on Vine
              724 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA 90038

              525 S Flower St, Los Angeles, CA 90071

            2. Barney's Beanery in Santa Monica? Or any of those restaurants around there. Then maybe say goodnight to the Grandparents and have plenty of options to walk around to afterward...

              Dar Maghreb Restaurant in Hollywood? I think that's about $40 fixed price..

              Yamashiro with a great view?

              Don't forget the designated driver or taxi!!

              Dar Maghreb
              7651 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046

              1999 North Sycamore Ave., Hollywood, CA 90068

                  food is very so so at yamashiro and expensive. but views are nice!

              1. Well 1st and foremost, Happy 21st Birthday. Hope it's all that and then some.

                If you are into Japanese food, you would most likley enjoy a good old style Japanese steakhouse.

                The wife and I went with some family to a Japaneses Steakhouse in Palmdale a couple months ago. Between the Saki Bombs and the amazing table cooks food fliiping and volcanic onion skills, it was definitely a night to remember :)

                Saki, Saki, Saki Bomb! What a blast.

                Again Happy 21st and Cheers!
