Looking for a restaurant anywhere in Hollywood, Weho, downtown or the westside where we can have a 40th birthday dinner for 12 people.
Every restaurant I call to make a simple reservation wants me to essentially book a private room and/or do a prix fix meal (was quoted $45 a person just for food for pizzas and salad). We aren't opposed to spending up to $100 a person all in (food, drinks, gratuity, tax), but I just can't find a place to make it work where we will get a good meal for the $100pp. Not even opposed to prix fix as long as they aren't gouging us and giving us a bad menu for what we are paying.
Foodwise we are open to any type of cuisine except Asian (no sushi, thai, indian or Chinese). Ambiance wise, would love a place like Bazaar or Mercato di Vietro.
