Does anyone have recommendations for a nice restaurant location (preferably with a private room) at which to hold our firm's holiday sit-down dinner, preceded by cocktails and passed hors d'veoures (sp)? Approximately 16-18 people in attendance. In the past we've had events at a wide range of places (last year's party was at Chez Mimi in Santa Monica --just lovely -- and other events have been at places like Sonora Cafe on La Brea, Ciudad, etc.)
Recs downtown, on the westside or in the SF Valley are welcome. SGV/Pasadena and South Bay, alas, are too far afield.
Any and all recs are welcome! Many thanks!
