Ok, here is my quandry. I am planning a birthday dinner for this Saturday night for 15 people. Originally I wanted to do Maggianos - not the best food in the world, but good location, offers family style dining, reasonably priced, and those profiteroles ARE tasty. However, they are already booked up for this Saturday and can't take such a large group. My second choice was PF Changs - same location, same family-style deal, but they can't take a group larger than 12 ahead of time. So I find myself looking for suggestions. Can anyone suggest a place that has:
1. Decent food
2. Offers some form of group dining, which will make the evening less stressfull (what I DONT want to deal with is "Well, I only ordered an appetizer for my meal, so I should pay less...etc etc)
3. Is in a good city or suburbs location (i.e. parking available, even if it's pay parking).
4. Is NOT in Chinatown...I appreciate the chinese banquet, but I work in Chinatown and generally get my fill of its restaurants during the week.
I welcome all suggestions! Thanks!
