Last pesky request, I promise... Peninsula Birthday dinner re-evaluation

laterible | Aug 27, 2013 08:28 PM

So I had thought I had it all planned out for the relatives arrival (Napoletano, Amber India, Agave, HK Saigon on weekend lunch) and was going with Asian for the birthday dinner but have since been informed that they want a fun drinking lively place for the dinner (never mind that the bday gal likes Asian...). SO I am looking for the perfect place- lively, good drinks, good food, not dead on a Sunday night...
anywhere in Palo Alto/Mtn View/Los Altos/Menlo Park areas.

I was thinking of la Bodegita del Medeo but not thrilled about the reviews and havent been in years. Joya? Scratch? (have not been to either) Coconuts? Something like Nola's but better food... (and they were there last time ) any cuisine that has cocktails- mojitos...

I welcome all suggestions and I promise this is the last time I bother y'all...

Thanks so much for all recommendations and advice
