I don't know the Pasadena area that well, but I am looking for a place to go to dinner with a big group (15-20) for my son's college graduation. I'd like a fun atmosphere, good drinks, and interesting food (he's the one that turned me on to this board, so I want to impress him!).
I don't really like Il Fornaio and neither does my son. Some people in the party don't like sushi, so that's also out of the question.
Would Xiomara be good for this? I've never eathen there.
I'm willing to splurge on dinner. He only graduates once. Then I have 2 more to think about...
