Group dinner of 35 - Prefer foodie destination

I'm hosting a dinner event for about 35 people and am looking for suggestions for restaurants. I much much prefer foodie places as opposed to "view" places. I like innovative cuisine and price isn't really an issue.

Cafe Juanita would be perfect but their room only holds 30.

I'm not a fan of the Daniel's Broiler/El Gaucho/Seastar types of places. Although it's good food, it's not quite what I'm looking for. Ditto for Ray's.

I've obviously thought of Canlis as well, but I don't <love> their food. I like Chef Franey's modernization of the menu, and I may end up at Canlis, but am looking for something less cliche.

Thanks for any ideas....

  1. The private room at Local 360 should be able to hold that many people.

    1. There's a private dining room at Staple & Fancy that sounds like what you are looking for.

        Or, for another Stowell restaurant, the communal table at Tavolata?

      2. both STEELHEAD DINER and BLUEACRE SEAFOOD have private dining rooms and the skills of kevin davis - tom douglas offers PALACE BALLROOM but 35 may not be a large enough party for that huge space and the menu would have to be banquet-syle rather than a la carte.

          Tom Douglas' Dahlia Lounge has a room that will accomodate 35.
