I waited way too long to plan this, but I'm looking for a decent place to take 10 family and family friends out to dinner on Friday night. People are coming from some distance (OC), so I'd like to go somewhere nicer than the Chili's in Westwood and preferably something also non-chain. A place that took reservations might be nice, but also might be too much to ask. We could probably eat early too.
It's odd that after spending a few years at UCLA, I know practically nothing about the nearby restaurants.
