LA Chowhound needs help! (Dad's 60th)

L | Apr 25, 200402:01 PM     4

So, I really tried to figure out where my family (who will be in the city for my father's 60th birthday for a few days in June) should eat, but I became overwhelmed by the choices and am pleading for your help.

The meals in question are for a more casual Friday night after an afternoon spent in the East Bay at Scharffen Berger (my pops is a chocolate fanatic) and a more "fancy" Saturday night celebration. There are 8 of us and unfortunatly our taste in food runs from one brother (who is a chef here in LA) who loves good food, whether it comes from a dive or a fancy restaraunt.....all the way to one who dosen't really like much outside of the meat/potato/pizza universe.

We are either going to Chez Panisse or Oliveto for lunch on Fri. I'd like to check out the new Slanted Door space on Friday pm, but is that not nice to do when one of the people in the party dosen't like Asian food? Fleur de Lys and Fifth Floor have been suggested for dinner on Sat.

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
