I need recommendations for the following two business dinners, hopefully within walking distance of the JW Marriott downtown:
1. Dinner for four at a restaurant with a relatively quiet atmosphere conducive to conversation. Budget? I'd like to stay under $300--less, if possible.
2. Dinner for 16. Not looking for a private room per se (every restaurant that I've called in the area has a food and beverage minimum for their private rooms that I just don't think we'll reach). Can be more casual, more fun ... more of a scene without being crazy loud. Budget? $1200 - 1500, if possible--and, again, I'm more than willing to consider less expensive options!
Thanks for whatever advice you can offer!
