Hello fellow Chowhounds,
I work for the city of Beverly Hills and I have been entrusted to find us a location for our annual holiday party in early December. It's going to be for 55-60 people and will be a lunch event. One very important item that I should mention is that the venue <b>MUST<b/> be located in the city of Beverly Hills proper. In these trying economic times, it's important for us to recycle that money in the community. :)
I'm trying to keep the cost to around $25 per person including food, tax and service charge to stay within my penurious budget handed down from above. A little wiggle room is fine, but I don't think it can be any more than $30 p/p. To date, I've contacted McCormick & Schmick's as well as Prego Ristorante and all of them have been a little over on the budget.
Also, any recommendations on restaurants/services that cater and do a good job would be very appreciated. If not at a garden, we can always have it delivered here to our courtyard.
Help me, please! If not for me, at least do it for the dog.
