Dreaded annual birthday dinner is on. I'd like a moderate-upscale restaurant that feels a bit special. It will be a Tuesday evening. Good quality food with entrees $18-$30 range. Ideally, full bar, but not essential. I hate larger table gatherings where you may get seated on the end and stuck talking with only 1-2 people seated beside you. I love round tables since they are more conducive to group feeling and conversation. Are there any restaurants that come to mind....that aren't Chinese??? Ideally, quality Californian, Mediterranean cuisine? For a group of fun, social 40's professionals. Thank you so much for any suggestions.
