Dinner recs for Sat night Hollywood or mid-City

  • 5

I have in-laws coming into town and I need to set up a birthday dinner for 8 people (including 2 kids) for this sat. We're trying to find some happy medium between east and west sides, so Hollywood or mid-city would probably both work, but my mind is blank in terms of someplace that's festive enough but not too fancy. (One restriction: not too spicy for the older folks and kids.) Any suggestions?

  1. for my birthday one year a group of us went to antonios mexican food on melrose. we got the back wine cellar room all to ourselves! it was so festive and fun. i had a great time and the food was good.

    1. Osteria Mozza?

      1. Gardens of Taxco is excellent. See if you can get their back room. Five-course, Mexico City homestyle cooking for under $20. It's fun, festive and most of their dishes are flavorful but not at all spicy (I can't handle anything remotely hot). Also, Cafe des Artistes, a very good, affordable French bistro, Koji's for shabu-shabu and Minestraio for Italian. Have a great time!

          1. re: outshined

            I haven't been to any of those yet (except Mozza, which i assumed would be tough for Sat night table) -- thanks, all!
