Looking for a place for about eight guys to enjoy a good meal and some good cocktails with the appropriate atmosphere.
Usually, a prerequisite for us is that the place makes a good steak, and a dry martini. In the past, we've done Morton's, the Palm, Nick & Stef's, and Musso's. Looking to try someplace else this time.
I haven't seen any postings on the board for Voda in Santa Monica, but I've heard they have a good bar. Another place I've never seen mentioned here is the Dal Rae in Pico Rivera, a true old traditional steak house. Unfortunately it lost some of its old "good fellas" appeal when they remodeled the place some years back.
Driving isn't an issue since we'll rent a limo for the night.
