I meet with a group of 9-12 people once a month on Monday nights.This month I am in charge of picking the restaurant and I am at a loss. I need someplace open on Mondays, of course, that can seat a group of around 12. We also are looking to spend less than $40/person including a drink or two, but preferably closer to $25-$30. It is a book club so somewhere that isn't too loud to carry a conversation is important. I am open to anything, pizza, dim sum, etc. as long as it serves drinks or is at least BYOB. The location could be anywhere from El Cerrito to Oakland (not too far past Jack London Square). Thanks for any ideas you can provide.
