I need some reccomendations for a big group (8-10 people) for next Saturday night. Needs to be FUN, not stuffy, but also have a lot of foodies attending so the food needs to be good too. Preferably downtown, but I'm not opposed to any area. THANKS so much! :)

        La Esquina, you can contact the reservations department and they have a great private section for parties of your size. The food is very good, try the tortilla soup and anything they have that is grilled. Atmosphere is fun, not stuffy, lots of pretty people. A little pricey, if you care about that, but worth it.
