So we wanted to go to Bahooka for a birthday dinner this weekend - a bit of a drive from Los Feliz but worth it for the experience - fun drinks, not too pricey, could handle a larger party - but they're utterly booked since the place is (alas!) closing down.
Now we're racking our brains for somewhere else to take its place.
Anybody have a fave place to suggest? Not too pricey - get out of there for maybe $20-25 a person - drinks available or near a fun bar for afterwards - can accommodate maybe 15-20 people - bonus points for being a culinary excursion.
Thoughts included Polka (too small) - Guelaguetza - Damon's in Glendale (tiki sub-in).
