I'm from So Cal. I've been a chowhounder down here for years. I'm finding myself getting married in Palo Alto this August and, as the groom, it's my responsibility to host the rehearsal dinner. My problem... I'm not from that area and have no clue where to go.
I'd like to find a place near Palo Alto. Or, maybe Santa Clara. One of the neighboring cities? I really don't know the area at all.
I have about 60-70 out of town relatives coming in and the place has to sit that many. I'm looking to spend between 25 and 50 a head.
The places I've located (through online searches) so far include Chef Chu's, 3 Flames Restaurant, Frankie, Johnnie, and Luigi Too, and Buca di Beppo that can host that many people. I've only been to Buca's before. It's okay.
Any thoughts on the above selections? Any other recommendations?
