O.K.. Money no object. Got that, but a little more info would be useful:
1) Since it's "HIS" birthday, what type of food (or cuisine) does he like best and/or what especially to avoid ?
2) Atmosphere - formal, dressy casual, or laua shirts ?
3) What area of the L.A. Uber-opolis would be best ? (i.e., If you live in North Hollywood, would Laguna Beach be too far ?).
Thinking it should be a private room, we have a lot of loud friends! Not formal, more dressy casual. Lately we have been going to a few funerals that were Hawaiian theme, so scratch that. We are in Malibu but people will be coming from all over OC and LA. I remember going to a birthday at Chinois on Main's private room, so maybe something like that. Or that? Looking for options. Oh, and it's mid November.
