Early dinner Sunday 5/6 after memorial for deceased
Hello, my family will be coming in from other parts of the country for a memorial service. I would like to have a few suggestions for a place to dine afterwards, around 5:30 or 6 PM in or near Beverly Hills. Would like it be under $35 pp and either a place that could accommodate close to 20 people. Not noisy either. Would welcome your suggestions!
Cafe Bella Roma on Robertson--small, but they can reserve a table or tables for you family style. I recall that there was no or very little corkage fee, so we brought our own wine when we went there with a group, which brought down costs. Geographically, this is a little south of the SE corner of BH, but not far, and it will be easy to navigate and park on a Sunday.
Shamshiri Grill is a Persian restaurant on Westwood Blvd. that serves big portions of very tasty food -- kebabs, shawarma, stews, served with mountains of good rice and grilled veggies. Will definitely fit your budget -- entrees are in the low to mid-teens and big enough to share, though they might get testy if adults do. They have an enclosed patio in front that perhaps your group could arrange to take over, or you could be seated together in one section of the large dining room. I really don't know about the noise level on a Sunday night -- lots of multi-generation families eating then. Easy short drive from Beverly Hills on Santa Monica Blvd. (and a right) or on Wilshire (and a left) on Westwood Blvd.
