We're looking to have a rehearsal lunch (instead of dinner) in Malibu for our families who will all be visiting from out of town. We'd really like to take them to a spot where they can see the ocean since they don't get to see it often. Ideally, it should be able to accommodate larger groups (we're expecting around 35 people).
I know there's a few great restaurants along the PCH (Nobu, Gladstones, Duke's, etc.) but our budget is set at $2K. Anyone know of a place along the beach that can fit into our budget? We're willing to dip into Santa Monica if that's what it takes - although the closer to Malibu the better since that's where the wedding will be. Thanks!
