Ethnicity is unimportant. What is important is the cuisine, the ambience and the service. Dinner is to celebrate a young lady's major career promotion after she has spent the past eight years working her ass off to prepare herself for it. She, her mother, sister and I make up the party. The San Fernando Valley is preferable, but not mandatory. It has to have a bar including champaign (in case I want to order it.) I'm not looking for the cheapest restaurant in town, but I also don't want to blow my entire social security check on it. This is a very special dinner for a very special young lady, so I'd deeply appreciate all suggestions. Thank you.
