I'm planning a birthday party for a group of young(ish), hip people. We'd like a restaurant with a unique, cool atmosphere and great food. Ethnic is a plus, and we'd like to order big family-style platters at one long table in an intimate, private room. Last year, we had a private room at Chosun Galbee for Korean BBQ, and that was fantastic.
I thought about the back room at Little Door, now that the food has improved, but that seems a little pricey by the time all is said and done.
We'd like something très L.A., but the food's gotta be great and the atmosphere intimate and special. We will be 12 to 15 people. Any ideas?
