We will be a party of five, looking for something nice (maybe reservations required) for the step-dad's birthday. I loathe buffets, so sit-down would be preferable. We went last year to Campanile, which gives you an idea what we're looking for. Trying to stay close to the Westside, but West Hollywood would also work.
Thanks, 'Hounds. Next week is the big family dinner for eight people at Senor Fred, so I will post back on that later.
