Graduation Dinner

prettypithy | May 18, 2005 06:29 PM

I will graduating from UCLA in June and my family is coming from up north to attend. We are hoping to have a nice dinner following the ceremonies but after years of swilling Boba in Westwood, I am having difficulty thinking of a place that will suit all of our needs. We are open to a multitude of cuisines and while we are looking for someplace nice, we do have a budget (under $500). It will be dinner for eight including one crotchety old man (my grandfather who is footing the bill--we want to keep him happy), a two month old baby and a precocious (though well mannered) five year old girl. What restuarant in Los Angeles is good for a celebration, amenable to large parties, loud enough to accomodate small children and, hopefully, located on the Westside? And, let us not forget, has really, really good food. I was thinking something like Duke's in Malibu but I've never been there myself. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
