I'm celebrating my birthday this Saturday and have reservations at three restaurants (AOC, Dominick's and Cobras & Matadors on Beverly), and need help deciding which one to go to.
It's a party of five people in their late 20s and while we'll be going elsewhere for drinks afterwards, I'd still like to dine in a lively, fun atmosphere to make it more of an occasion. As for cost, I'd like to keep the bill reasonable since I'm picking up the tab for everyone, but all three are in my price range, so not too much of a concern. AOC is one of my favorite restaurants in LA and I like Cobras & Matadors as well, but never been to Dom's. I guess I'm trying to find the perfect birthday blend of good food and festive atmosphere. Any thoughts?
