Looking for unique dining near Hollywood

I have a group coming into town for a conference at the Westin Diplomat. I'm looking for dinner at a unique (not steak or Italian) within 15 minutes of the hotel.

Pricing isn't really an issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

    Taverna opa is amazing greek food, waiters dancing on the tables, fun music, sangria is amazing! about a five to ten minute drive from diplomat

        How large is your group and what do you mean by "unique"? There's a lot that falls between steak and Italian.

          Are there any asian or concept restaurants in the area. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm not looking for your typical italian restaurant or steakhouse. PS(the asian place in the Westin is closed the night we need to do our dinner). The group is about 15 ppl.

            I would say the Rustic Inn is the most "unique"
            Billy's for all you can eat Stone crabs.
            GG's for a good meal on the Intracoastal

              Definitely agree with Yako-San They should be able to accomodate your group.
