A friend of mine is staffing a convention function over the weekend in SD, close to the Gaslamp Quarter. He needs to host a dinner on Friday or Saturday for 7-8 volunteer staff at 15-20 a head, and I was wondering if you could recommend anything. Food needs to be relatively approachable since the degree of sophistication in diners attending may be highly variable. Some adventurous menu items would be cool, but a few not-too-exciting standbys would be helpful too.
Yeah, I'm a noob, but we only recently moved here. :( Help!
