Daughter's Birthday - Decor vs Food - Yikes!

teaeye | Sep 25, 2008 03:57 PM

I live in Santa Monica. My daughter wants to go to Jar for her 23rd birthday dinner. She says, "I just think it looks really cool and I am more interested in décor then food, I know that we are not alike in this way! "

I don't want to spend $100+/pp when she doesn't even care about the food.

My new idea is to take her to a stylish bar for a drink - let her soak up the coolness and decor and then go somewhere I like (say Rustic Canyon) for an excellent, but closer and more reasonably priced meal.

I'm thinking of the Huntley Penthouse bar - any other suggestions?
