Company dinner (steak or Mexican/Latin) around DTLA/Pasadena on a budget
I've been tasked to make arrangements for a company dinner for 11 on a Wednesday in or around downtown or Pasadena. Has to be steak or Mexican/Latin and our budget is $50 pp (food only) before tax and tip. It doesn't need to be formal or upscale, but not too loud so that we can hold a conversation.
Here's what I've come up with so far. Would appreciate your input or suggestions!
Yxta Cocina Mexicana
La Serenata de Garibaldi
Porto Alegre Churrascaria (this is my back-up if nothing else pans out in my budget)
