Restaurant Selection Help
I'm organizing an end of the semester dinner for my graduate school class this Saturday. I had originally want to do it at FIG in Santa Monica to take advantage of the half priced menu between 5 and 6. However, I called to make a reservation only to discover that they have a full restaurant buy out Saturday night. Anyone have any suggestions for something comparable, Santa Monica or West LA preferred with a $20-30 a person price range? Thanks
all the other comparable restaurants cost a lot more money.
in my experience (westside only) even fig-at-five, would easily end up costing more than $20-$30/pp out the door.
given your budget, i'd consider C & O Cucina in venice or Shamshiri Grill on westwood blvd.
another idea: on venice blvd where it meets abbot kinney, Tlapazola. Just know, though, that if you go at prime time, even with a reservation, at Tlapazola you will be waiting.
how many people?
There are lots of happy hour specials going on at Santa Monica places, but don't know if they do happy hour specials on Saturdays.
Edit: check into Pourtal wine bar, they appear to have a hh special from 12-4. Not sure why, but I have a nagging feeling they are no longer there, but I could be thinking of someplace else.
