In town next month to take daughter and her girlfriends to dinner for daughter's 20th birthday. The group will probably be 10-12, on a Monday night. It should be fairly close to campus (Wash U) as she told me she has to put in a few hours after dinner because she has a test the next day. She loves the Cheesecake Factory (great salads!) but I would like suggestions for something else, since that is a place she goes to already. We were also talking about PF Changs, but since that is another standby of hers, I would appreciate any other ideas. Money is not the issue, but exotic or spicy food would not work, and the tapas and thai places have already been done by this group when they go out on their own.
Another idea is to do a dessert party at Bissingers on Maryland, following dinner with the two of us at Harvest or another of our favorites. Any thoughts?
