We have some dear friends from Tokyo coming over and we want to take them to a wonderful meal. They are staying near the Beverly Center. I wanted to take them somewhere new and interesting, not Japanese food, but I don't get over the hill very often. We will be a party of eight with two children, 9 and 12. I have booked Anisette but want to check in with the Chowhounds just in case i am making a terrible mistake! Thanks!
