It's been a couple years since I came hat in hand for help from you Seattle Hounds but I'm hoping you're feeling generous again. The SO has a work thing with all the partners in his business converging on the Cedarbrook Lodge on a Wed, Thur and Fri. The hotel restaurant though pricey seems to get okayish reports on y**p (Copperleaf Restaurant) and happy hour on the terrace there from 3-5:30 doesn't look half bad but even if they do that one evening, it would be great to get them "off campus" a couple nights at least.
There will be 11 people so reservations are a must. They are coming from Vancouver, Toronto and Laguna Hills, CA so kinda thinking Cantonese and Mexican won't be prime targets. Also mostly pretty conventional eaters -- one guy was joking, I think, that he would just go to Morton's every night if he could) though not my fella of course ;-). Perhaps the 13 Coins at 18000 International Boulevard for the Morton's-leaning folks one evening? Menu size (130 items!?) and 24-7 opening freaks me out but it seems to get some love online. Thoughts?
What about Mango Thai just down the road from 13 Coins?
Sharps Roasthouse? Painted Hills patties cooked to order is a potential plus. Calling them hamburgs is a minus, at least for me :-). Can a group of engineers pass up a chance to eat under a ceiling full of bent propellers? Should they?
Driving a bit further (say up to 20 minutes tops each way) could work one night so I looked at Georgetown for starters -- most places seemed too casual/didn't take resos but I found Corson Building, looks pretty enticing and they have a la carte Thur-Fri so I think could work for less adventurous palates. Not sure they can accommodate a group this large. No prices on website for a la carte.
Not married to any of these places and very open to suggestions. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer, kind Hounds!
