Hi -- So a party of 5 (with one 80 year old) is looking for a restaurant with good to excellent food and a fun atmosphere for a birthday. We have done the Morroccan belly dancing route before, but really looking for good energy and good food together.
Places we like to eat: Foundry, Street, Ammo, Fraiche, Rustic Canyon, Sublime, Lukshon, Hatfield's. We haven't been to AOC in a long time, and weren't too impressed last time. Gjenlina will be too loud for the 80 year old.
Foundry was dinged as not "fun" enough -- ditto Hatfield's and Ammo. Animal was deemed too extreme (not sure what that means, but it's her birthday).
The Tasting Kitchen doesn't have an opening for 2 months. We'd love to try someplace new. We will have been at a 1 PM Dodger game so will be coming back to the Westside, but the Lazy Ox could still be in the running.
Thanks in advance!
