This probably says something about my personality (and we can save those assesments for another board), but I have never asked a question for the good men and women of CHOWHOUNDS before. Though I am always willing (eager even) to GIVE my opinion. So in a change of pace here goes.
I am looking for a Great restaurant for 6 gay men to attend as 40th birthday celebration. Money need not be an issue because the tab is being picked up by one of the partygoers. So it is a chance to really eat well, but I personally rate the expense as a secondary consideration to the food and fun. We want to relax, talk loud, eat great food, drink terrific wine, but not feel too reverential about the dining experience (read not Patina).
Also, we strongly prefer it be in Hollywood, Los Feliz, or Silverlake though we would consider Downtown or West Hollywood.
You need not be gay to answer...
My friend Rocco (Birthday Boy) thanks you!
