Need a place for dinner tomorrow night with a group of 8 or so people. We're starting out in Santa Monica, although it could be any place between there and mid-city. I'm looking for someplace that is not expensive, fun but not deafeningly loud. (And takes reservations - not willing to risk it on Saturday night!)
Here's the story: We are a small amateur klezmer band, will be playing at a retirement home in Santa Monica tomorrow at 6, want to eat afterwards. We usually eat together at a deli, but might be willing to branch out!
