Restaurant Venue for 100? (DTLA)

GuyOliver Apr 1, 2011 06:49 PM

My fiance and I would like to have a wedding dinner party for about 90-100 people in downtown LA. At this point, it seems best to hold the party at a restaurant. Any thoughts on a good restaurant that rents rooms or the main room to a party of 100? Border Grill comes to mind, but I'm blanking besides that.

    At a lower budget point, there's always Empress Pavilion or one of the other larger Chinatown restaurants. (Yes, I know it ain't the SGV.)

      You might see what the Biltmore can do, some of their spaces are fantastic.

          restaurant-wise, the beauty of Cicada is really up there. only thing that really springs to mind for me. dunno about the food though.

            Second the rec for Cicada. The dining room and the food are both great.

            Another option would be Cafe Pinot (the patio would be terrific during the Spring or early Summer months).

            But alot of what may work will depend on your budget. WP24 would probably work as would Takami, but I'd imagine those would be quite pricey -- which is not to say that either Cicada or Cafe Pinot are cheap by any means.
