I've been lurking on these boards for a while and now I need to ask for some advice! A friend of mine (Minnesotan currently living in LA) is engaged and we'll be taking her dress shopping when she is in town at Christmas. We'd like to throw her a surprise engagement party/dinner afterwards. Unfortunately, though I am in the bridal party, we aren't in a position to foot the bill for everyone. So what I am looking for is:
A place that would be good for a group of about 15, private room or just anywhere that has a good set-up for accomodating a group like that. Not too pricey, with entrees about $15, since we will have to ask everyone to pay their own way. In the cities, maybe inner ring suburb would be best. And bonus points for an atmosphere or staff who might be extra helpful, as the dinner planners will be arriving at the venue with the bride, we won't be there to direct early arriving guests.
