Need recommendation for downtown l.a. group birthday lunch
Please help me figure out a good restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles within walking distance of the California Water Plaza for a group birthday lunch (about 20 people)! Some suggestions I have already received include the Noe at the Omni Hotel and Nic and Stef's Steakhouse but both are more than our budget allows. It would be idea to find something within walking distance but if nothing exists, we would be willing drive a short distance for good food and cool atmosphere. Another suggestion made if we drive is Yxta. Someone help me, please! Thank you!
I second Wurstkuche! I want to also add The Spice Table. However, both might be too casual for a brthday lunch. You may want to check them out beforehand.

Within walking distance, Border Grill at the corner of Figueroa and 5th might work. There also is McCormick and Schmick's, which is about two blocks from California Plaza.
If you're trying to keep costs down, dim sum in Chinatown -- though not as good as in San Gabriel -- is relatively inexpensive.

Yxta, is great.Good food, easy parking and reasonable prices. Better then Border Grill in my opinion.Nice atmosphere.
