I'm already starting to think about my bday dinner in November and would love to hear some ideas. My ideal venue would be a place with great creative food with a really fun vibe to set the party mood. (Good music and decor would be great too.) I'm thinking entrees $15-25 or so, or a good value tasting menu ($30-40) would be great too.
Right now I'm considering Chameau, Opus, and possibly Cube for their good value tasting menu and BYOB/no corkage. On the higher end, I've also been wanting to try Koi, the new Katsu-Ya, or Little Door, but haven't made it there.
Oh yeah, the other consideration is location. My friends and I will all be coming from the Westside/South Bay area, but I'd like to pick a place convenient to going out to hit some fun bars afterward.
Am I asking for too much? :)
