I am in charge of planning my grandmother's 85th birthday party. She is a very hip 85 year old but both she and my grandfather have a hard time hearing in loud, crowded restaurants. There will be about 10-12 people so if a restaurant has a private room.. that may work for the quiet factor but I am open to any suggestons. I am looking for something in Santa Monica, Brentwood, Culver city, most of West LA, Bev Hills, West Hollywood areas.
I am trying to find somewhere they have never been because they are big foodies and this is the first time ive been given the job to plan so I want to show them a good time. Their favorite restaurants are La Cachette, Katsuya, Lawry's, the Grill, Hamasaku, Dante's.
A few ideas I've had are the following:
Pace (in hollywood hills)
Fogo de Chao
Penthouse at the Huntley
any other ideas would be greatly appreciated. of all of the ideas -- ive only been to Sofi and Fogo de Chao so I cant comment on the quality and atmosphere at the others.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
