I'm looking for a recommendation for a birthday dinner in orange county for around 8 people. I've already tried suggesting mariscos puerto esperanza but been shot down due to its atmosphere.
Ideal budget is under $30 per person (not including drinks) which will preclude Japanese. Also, Vietnamese and Indian/Pakistani are off limits. I was thinking of Pizzeria Ortica since we like Comme Ca, but I'm not sure it can be done in within budget, or maybe some great korean bbq. Thanks in advance.
